Tommy Sören Sjödin (born August 13, 1965 in Timrå, Sweden), is a retired Swedish ice hockey defenceman, who played 106 NHL games during two seasons, five years for clubs in the Swiss Nationalliga A and fifteen seasons with Brynäs IF in the Swedish Elitserien.

Playing career[edit]

Sjödin played in the Swedish elite league Elitserien with Brynäs IF from 1986 to 1992, winning the Golden Puck as Sweden's top player in 1991-92. He went on to play in the National Hockey League for the Minnesota North Stars, Dallas Stars, and Quebec Nordiques between 1992 and 1994. He played in Switzerland with HC Lugano from 1994 to 1998, except for a brief period with HC Bolzano in Italy in 1996-97.

Before Sjödin returned to the Swedish Elite League, he played one season with Kloten. He then rejoined his former team, Brynäs IF, which was to become his last.

February 3, 2007, in an away game against Frölunda, putting Brynäs up 2-1 he became the oldest player ever to score a goal in Elitserien; at the age of 41 years, 5 months and 21 days, breaking Börje Salming's record from 1992.[1]

Sjödin played for the Swedish national team in four IIHF World Championships from 1992 to 1996, and was on the 1992 Olympic team.
