Description


Growing up in Sweden, Pelle Lindbergh dreamed of playing goalie in the National Hockey League. More specifically, he wanted to follow his boyhood idol, Bernie Parent, and play for the Philadelphia Flyers. The dream became a reality when the Philadelphia Flyers drafted him during the second round of the 1979 NHL entry draft. What no one knew at the time was the dream would end so tragically. Pelle made the Flyers full time during 1982-1983 season, and was named to the All Rookie team. In 1985, he helped lead the Flyers to the Stanley Cup Final, and became the first European to win the Vezina trophy as the NHL s best goalie. In November of 1985, Pelle s life was cut short when he died in a car accident during the season. He was the first player to be posthumously voted to an all-star team in North American Sports. Pelle Lindbergh follows the life and career of Pelle, from his childhood in post WWII Stockholm, the 1980 Olympics and his time playing for the Philadelphia Flyers.
