Marcus Högberg (born 25 November 1994) is a Swedish professional ice hockey goaltender for the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). Högberg was selected by the Senators in the third round (78th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Högberg made his Swedish Hockey League debut playing with Linköping HC during the 2012–13 Elitserien season.[1] On 17 March 2013, it was announced that Linköping would loan Högberg to Mora IK of the lower HockeyAllsvenskan for the duration of the 2013–14 season.[2]

After his fourth season in the SHL, Högberg was signed to a two-year entry-level contract with the Ottawa Senators on 30 March 2017.[3] He was signed by AHL affiliate, the Binghamton Senators, to a professional try-out deal to close out the 2016–17 season.[citation needed]

Högberg split most of the 2017–18 season between the AHL Belleville Senators and the Senators ECHL team, the Brampton Beast.

Högberg began the 2018–19 season with the Belleville Senators.[4] However, before he was able to play a game for the Senators that season, he was re-assigned to the ECHL on 27 November.[5] After being recalled back to the AHL,[6] and playing in seven games, Högberg was recalled to the NHL on 22 December 2018.[7] He was shortly thereafter re-assigned to the AHL but eventually made his NHL debut on 29 December against the Washington Capitals.[8] He made 21 saves in the 3–2 loss to the Capitals.[9]

On 19 June 2019, Högberg was signed to a two-year contract extension, with the second year on a one-way basis with the Senators at $700,000.[10]
