Playing career[edit | edit source]
Lagesson played as a youth in his native Sweden within the Frölunda HC organization. Following his second season in the J20 SuperElit, Lagesson was drafted in his first year of eligibility by the Edmonton Oilers in the fourth-round, 91st overall, of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Opting to continue his development in North America, Lagesson was selected 11th overall in the 2014 USHL Entry Draft by the Dubuque Fighting Saints.
Lagesson played two years with the struggling Minutemen program before leaving after his sophomore season and deciding to turn pro, in signing a three-year entry-level contract with the Edmonton Oilers on April 7, 2017.
On May 8, 2017, it was announced by the Oilers that Lagesson would spend the 2017–18 season, returned to Sweden on loan with Djurgårdens IF of the SHL. While with Djurgården, Lagesson made his professional debut in solidifying a regular role on the blueline. In 49 appearances, he contributed with 1 goal and 12 assists for 13 points in the regular season. He continued his steady play in the post-season with an assist in 11 games.
Returning to the Oilers over the summer, and after participating in the NHL training camp, Lagesson was assigned to begin the 2018–19 season with AHL affiliate, the Bakersfield Condors, on September 20, 2018.
