He competed in the 1960, 1964 and 1968 Olympics and finished in fifth, second and fourth place, respectively. At the world championships he won two gold, two silver and two bronze medals between 1957 and 1967, and was named the best defenseman in 1963. Stoltz also won European titles in 1957 and 1962, and was selected to the Swedish all-star team in 1959, 1960, 1963, 1964 and 1966. In 1999 he was inducted into the IIHF Hall of Fame.[1][2]
