Nichlas Hardt (born July 6, 1988) is a Danish professional ice hockey Forward who currently plays for Linköpings HC of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL).

Playing career[edit]

Hardt was selected Rookie of the Year in the Danish ice hockey league in 2007, where he represented the Herlev Hornets.[1] Despite his relatively small stature, Hardt is known for his physical style of play, throwing many hits while being a relentless forechecker.

He became the first Danish player to play in the top Finnish league, the SM-liiga, when he joined Tappara towards the end of the 2007–08 season. In the playoffs, he enjoyed considerable success for Tappara, registering 4 goals and 3 assists in 11 games as Tappara went on to finish third in the playoffs and win the bronze medals.

On April 16, 2014, Hardt left Kontinental Hockey League bound Jokerit after three seasons and signed a contract with SHL club, Linköpings HC for the 2014–15 season.[2]

International play[edit]

He represented Denmark at the 2008 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships and again at the 2008 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships and 2010 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships.
