A large defenceman, Tollefsen is known for his toughness. He likes to play with an aggressive style, is a hard hitter and a force in front of his own net. Tollefsen isn't very skilled with the puck and prefers to play a simple game. After playing in the Norwegian league as a 16-year-old, he was drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets and made his NHL debut during the 2005-2006 season. However, his career in North America was plagued by injuries and Tollefsen returned to Europe in 2010. (Matias Strozyk, 2011)

Second cousin: Carl Didrik Tollefsen
