</div></div> Christer Olsson (born July 24, 1970 in Arboga, Sweden) is a retired professional hockey player who played briefly in the NHL with the St. Louis Blues and Ottawa Senators. He played Defense and shot left handed.

Playing careerEdit

Olsson was drafted by the Blues in the 11th round, 275th overall in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. He played in Sweden for 2 years before splitting the 1995–1996 season with the Worcester Ice Cats of the AHL and making his debut with the Blues. The following season he was part of an infamous and extremely lopsided trade when he was traded by the Blues to the Ottawa Senators for Pavol Demitra. Demitra eventually became a scoring powerhouse with the Blues for a number of years while Olsson decided to go back to Sweden to play hockey after his short stint with the Senators that year.

Olsson played 7 more years in Sweden and one in Austria before retiring after the 2004–2005 season.
