Weight: 220
Shoots: Left
Born: Jul 13, 1975
Birthplace: Helsingborg, Sweden
Acquired: Signed as a free agent on August 24, 2005
Drafted: LAK / 2000 NHL Entry Draft
Round: 2nd (54th overall)
Andreas Lilja was born July 13, 1975 in Helsingborg, Sweden. The second round, 54th overall selection of the Los Angeles Kings in the 2000 NHL entry draft, Lilja played six seasons with Malmo of the Swedish Elite League.

In 2000-01, Lilja spent the majority of the year with the Kings AHL affiliate in Manchester scoring 36 points (7-29-36) and 149 PIM in 61 games, second among team defencemen. Lilja's strong play in Manchester earned him two games with the parent club in Los Angeles.

In 2001-02 the talented blueliner spent the majority of the year on the Kings roster, while playing in only a handful of games in Manchester. Lilja entered his third season with the Kings organization in 2002-03 and played 17 games in Los Angeles before being dealt to the Florida Panthers in the early stages of the 2002-03 season. After being acquired by the Panthers, Lilja went on to play a little over one season with the club before signing with the Nashville Predators in the summer of 2004.

Lilja would never suit up for the Preds'. Following a lock out season in 2004-05, the Detroit Red Wings acquired him in the summer of 2005. In his first season with the Red Wings, Lilja appeared in a career-high 82 games and became a regular on the club over the next few seasons. In 2007-08 he appeared in 79 games and went on to make his first appearance in the Stanley Cup finals. Lilja saw action in five games of the Stanley Cup finals, which saw his club capture the Stanley Cup for the fourth time in 11  years.

After five solid, if unspectacular seasons in Detroit, Lilja would become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2010. He signed a one-year deal with the Anaheim Ducks.

In the summer of 2011, after just one year on the west coast, Lilja was on the move again. This time he signed a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Flyers.
