Early career[edit | edit source]

He started his senior career with Spektrum Flyers in 1994 and played two seasons before signing with Manglerud Star in 1996. He stayed there for three seasons, and is by many considered as the best M/S player ever.

Moving abroad[edit | edit source]

In 1999 he signed with the Swedish Elitserien club Färjestad and won the Swedish Championship with them in 2002. He played there for six seasons, before moving to Germany and the Deutsche Eishockey Liga.

Germany[edit | edit source]

In 2005, he joined his best friend and fellow national team player, Martin Knold, playing for Iserlohn Roosters. He stayed only a single season with the Roosters, before getting signed by Kölner Haie in the same league. After four seasons in Cologne, he moved to Hamburg and the Freezers in 2010.

Personal life[edit | edit source]

His twin brother, Marius Trygg, also plays ice hockey, as well as their younger brother Mathias.
