Player Biography and Trivia

Number 22 retired by AIK

Cult/Star player for AIK

Cult/Star player for Nynäshamns IF

Cult/Star player for Winnipeg Jets

Kommer ursprungligen från Nynäshamn utanför Stockholm. Efter några succéfyllda år i Tre Kronor och AIK, så flyttade "Lill-Pröjsarn", som han allmänt kallas, till WHA tillsammans med Anders Hedberg för spel i Winnipeg Jets. Spelade där i en klassisk kedja med Hedberg och "Bobby" Hull.
Avslutade ishockeyspelandet i New York Rangers i NHL. De sista hockeyåren präglades dock av ideliga skadebekymmer.

Blev avstängd för doping vid hockey-vm 1974 då han tagit hostmedicin för en förkylning. Det kom att innebära att Sveriges vinst mot Polen med 4-1 förvandlades till förlust med 1-5. Ett dopingöde som även drabbade finske målvakten Stig Wetzell i samma turnering.

Bor i Stockholm.
