Career[edit | edit source]
He was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft in the 10th round as the 222nd pick overall. He then also played Färjestads BK and played with them until 1996 when he joined Calgary Flames. In February 1998 the Flames traded Höglund and Zarley Zalapski to the Montreal Canadiens for Valeri Bure and a draft pick. In July 1999 Hoglund joined the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent. He played with the Leafs for four seasons. During his tenure with the Leafs he often played on a line with countryman Mats Sundin, and along with Mikael Renberg formed the "Tre Kronor" line. While Hoglund's lack of scoring touch often frustrated fans, his hard work on the ice was consistently rewarded by head coach Pat Quinn. In September 2003 he signed a contract with the Florida Panthers, coached at the time by Mike Keenan. After failing to make the roster of the Panthers, he left and played the 2003-04 season with the Swiss club HC Davos. After one year with Davos, Höglund went back to Sweden och Färjestads BK and is currently (2006-07) playing his tenth season with the club.
