Lundström has also played in Sweden's national junior ice hockey team, both the under-16 and under-17 respective teams.

Playing career[edit]

Lundström played his first Elitserien game on 28 December 2010, which was against HV71. He replaced Björn Bjurling in the net after Bjurling had allowed three goals in the game's first 13 minutes. However, AIK lost the game 8–2.[1]

Lundström was drafted by the St. Louis Blues in the 5th round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft as the 132nd pick overall.[2][3]

In the midst of his second season within the Blues organization in 2015–16, Lundström was traded by St. Louis along with a 5th round selection in 2016 to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Anders Nilsson on 27 February 2016.[4]

Unable to establish a career in North America, Lundström returned to Sweden as a free agent and signed a one-year deal with second tier club, IF Björklöven of the HockeyAllsvenskan on April 29, 2016.
