Per Gustafsson (born June 4, 1970, in Oskarshamn, Sweden) is a Swedish professional ice hockey player with HV71 in the Swedish Elitserien.

Playing career Edit

Gustafsson is a very good two-way defenceman with a hard and accurate shot. He has got good vision for the game and is one of the best power play players in Sweden. He has been unfortunate with injuries during his career but has always made great comebacks.[1]

Gustafsson was drafted in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft by Florida Panthers with their 11th pick, 261st overall. He only played two seasons, 1996-97 and 1997-98, in the NHL and AHL. Playing for Florida Panthers, Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators he totalled 89 games for 35 points (8 goals and 27 assists).[1]

Pelle G, as he is called by the fans, has played for HV71, where is also assistant captain, for 18 seasons (as of 2008) and is one of the best defencemen in the club's history. In the fifth semi-final game against Färjestads BK, on April 2, 2006, Gustafsson broke HV71's last club record for played playoff games.[2] On September 28, 2006, he played his 657th game for HV71, passing Fredrik Stillman's record of 656 games for the club.[3]

In Elitserien season 1991-92 Gustafsson scored a goal against Luleå HF just after six seconds, which is still (as of 2006) Elitserien's record for fastest goal.[2]
