Tord Lundstrom
Left Wing
Number: 23
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 176
Shoots: Left
Born: Mar 4, 1945
Birthplace: Kiruna, Sweden
Acquired: Signed as a free agent by Detroit, in June 1973.
Born on March 4, 1945, in Kiruna, a town above the Arctic Circle that has given Swedish hockey a whole host of leading hockey stars, Lundstrom began playing with the local Kiruna AIF, where the talented player caught the eye of Brynas scouts. Other teams offered Lundstrom more attractive contracts, but he gave his word to Brynas. On June 1, 1963, the day when the rules allowed all players to sign contracts, Lundstrom kept his word and got off the train at the station in Gavle.

This marked the beginning of a remarkable career in Swedish hockey. Lundstrom's achievements include nine gold medals, four silver medals and one bronze medal from the Swedish national championships, in which Lundstrom played 428 games and scored 307 goals.

Swept along by the wave that carried many of the best Swedish players to the NHL, Lundstrom joined the Detroit Red Wings for the start of the 1973-74 season. But the North American hockey scene wasn't for everyone and Lundstrom, like many other excellent Swedish hockey players, returned home in 1973 and rejoined his native Brynas.

In 1981 Lundstrom coached Brynas for a single season. In 1986 he was persuaded to work with the team once more, but the first-class forward didn't shine as a coach. Tord Lundstrom is the holder of the unique title of Brynas' Best Player of All Time. He was awarded the title after an opinion poll was conducted among the fans of the popular club, which in the 1998-99 season won the championship title of Sweden for the 12th time-second in the number of championship wins in Swedish hockey. The results of the poll, conducted by the newspaper Arbetarbladet, put Lundstrom in first place with 1,237 points. To underscore the significance of this achievement, it's worth noting that the runner-up was the legendary defenseman Borje Salming with 1,235 points.

Lundstrom remains a recognized name in Swedish hockey, standing 77th on the list of "Great Men." When they talk about Lundstrom, Swedish fans still recall his resolute spirit. In recognition of his contribution to the team, the hockey jersey bearing number 6 that Lundstrom wore while playing for Brynas now hangs forever in the Gavlerinken hockey stadium.
