Pierre Engvall (born May 31, 1996) is a Swedish professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing with the Toronto Marlies in the American Hockey League (AHL) as a prospect to the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL). Engvall was selected by the Maple Leafs in the seventh round (188th overall) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

Engvall made his Swedish Hockey League debut during the 2014–15 season appearing in 2 regular season games. On May 8, 2015, Engvall signed a contract with Mora IK of the HockeyAllsvenskan (Allsv). After a successful breakout season with Mora in the 2015–16 season, Engvall signed a contract extension to remain with the club.[1]

Following the completion of his second full year with Mora IK, Engvall travelled to North America and agreed to sign an amateur try-out contract for the completion of the 2016–17 season with the Maple Leafs American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Toronto Marlies on April 12, 2017.[2] He appeared in one post-season game with the Marlies before opting to return to Sweden in signing a two-year contract with the reigning champions, HV71, in a return to the SHL on May 7, 2017.[3]

In his first full SHL season in 2017–18, Engvall despite missing games to injury produced 20 points in just 31 appearances for HV71. After an early post-season exit, Engvall for a second consecutive year agreed to a try-out to join the Toronto Marlies for the remainder of their season on March 21, 2018.[4] While in the midst of the Marlies playoff campaign, Engvall agreed to a two-year, entry-level contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs on May 18, 2018.[5]
