Biography

Erik Johansson, Göte Blomqvist and Stig Carlsson are still considered as the best line in Södertälje SK’s club history. They were also instrumental at the Swedish success during the early 1950s, scoring more than 200 goals in about 50 matches together. Like Blomqvist and Carlsson, Johansson played his entire career from 1944-60 with Södertälje SK. He won Swedish titles with them in 1953 and 1956. Internationally, Johansson was capped 142 times with the Swedish national team between 1947-59 and scored 73 goals. He won an Olympic bronze in 1952, was World Champion in 1953 and won World Championships silvers in 1947 and 1951 and bronze in 1954. He was also European Champion in 1951-53, while taking silver in 1947, 1949 and 1954 and bronze at the 1950 and 1955 European Championships. After finishing his sporting career, Johansson worked as an ice hockey coach with BK Remo. He was awarded the Stora Grabbars Märke (Big Boys’ Badge) #31 in ice hockey, a Swedish sports honorary award created in 1928 by Bo Ekelund.
