Player Biography and Trivia

Number 12 retired by Leksands IF

Cult/Star player for Avesta BK

Cult/Star player for Leksands IF

Cult/Star player for Sweden

Mats "Matta" Åhlberg, rumpmas från Avesta, kom till Leksands IF redan 1966. Han valde LIF i hård strid med bl a Västra Frölunda IF där "Bittan" Johansson jobbade hårt på att få honom söder över.
Det var Leksandsledaren Rune Mases som tillsammans med "Stickan" Påvels som efter en kvalmatch för Avesta BK följde efter Åhlberg i smyg. När han närmade sig hemmet så vågade dom båda leksingarna fram för att börja övertalningen.
En given ledargestalt i både Tre Kronor och Leksands IF under närmare tio år. Svensk mästare vid fyra tillfällen, spel i två olympiskaspel och tre VM medaljer talar sitt tydliga språk om hans storhet (164 A-landskamper).
"Matta" hade den naturliga talangen med en bländande teknik och sinne för att göra mål.

Var aktuell för spel i fotbollsallsvenskan för Sandvikens IF. Men han tackade nej och valde ishockeyn i stället. Deltog i den första upplagan av Canada Cup som spelades 1976.
