Lennie Arne Robin Rahm (born September 13, 1986) is a Swedish professional ice hockey goaltender, currently playing for Malmö Redhawks of the HockeyAllsvenskan.

In August 2010, as a result of testing positive for use of doping, Rahm was suspended from all professional ice hockey in the 2010–11 season as well as 2011–12. He returned in the 2012–13 season, signing a two-year deal with then-reigning Elitserien (SEL) champions Brynäs IF.

Playing career[edit]

Rahm played for his youth team Sunne IK in Sweden's Division 1. After having been dressed as a backup goaltender sporadically since the 2002–03 season, he took over as the starting goaltender for the 2005–06 season. Playing in 22 games, he posted a .917 save percentage and was ranked as the second best goaltender in save percentage in Division 1 E that season, despite that Sunne finished second to last in their division.

During the 2006–07 season, Rahm played in 28 games and improved his save percentage to .921, again ranked second in Division 1 E, but Sunne's sixth place finish did not qualify them for a playoff spot and they moved on to play in the spring series where Rahm posted an impressive .942 save percentage with two shutouts in five games. During that season, Rahm was briefly loaned to Södertälje SK in HockeyAllsvenskan where he dressed as a backup for two games,[1] and to Frölunda HC in Elitserien where he joined as an extra goaltender during practices.

After that season, he signed a two-year contract with Frölunda,[1] and was assigned to their HockeyAllsvenskan affiliate Borås HC,[2] but due to a groin injury during the pre-season, Rahm started the 2007–08 season with his former team Sunne in Division 1.[3]

On August 5, 2010, it was revealed that on June 28, 2010, Rahm tested positive for use of doping. The test showed signs of anabolic steroids.[4] On October 6, 2010, Rahm was suspended for two years.[5] Färjestad immediately cancelled his contract with the team.[6]

After the suspension, Rahm signed a two-year contract with reigning champions Brynäs IF of the Elitserien (SEL) on July 5, 2012 to return to the Swedish top-tier league for the 2012–13 season.[7]
