Per Hållberg

Per Hållberg (born March 24 1978 in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden) is a Swedish professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing for MODO Hockey in Elitserien.

Playing career

Hållberg started his career with his hometown club, MODO, as a young boy and at the age of 17 he made debut in Elitserien for MODO in 1994/95. He played a few games in 94/95 and 95/96, but in 96/97 he became a regular. In 1999 Hållberg played his first Swedish Championship final, but MODO lost to Brynäs IF. The following season MODO came to the finals once again, but they lost again, this time to Djurgårdens IF. Two years later MODO once more came to the finals, but once again they lost, Färjestads BK won with 3-0 in a best-of-five series. Now Hållberg was tired of silver and seconds places and he decide to change club. He therefor signed with Färjestad, the same club that had defeated him a few months earlier. But the "Hållberg curse" continued also in Färjestad. Because in the next three years Färjestad made it to finals but lost all three times, twice (2003 and 2005) to Frölunda HC and one time (2004) against HV 71. In 2004 Hållberg represented Sweden in the World Championship, and even there the curse followed him. Sweden lost in the finals to Team Canada. Now Hållberg had played seven finals and had seven silver medals.

During the 2005/06 season Hållberg announced that he would leave Färjestad after the season and that he had signed with the Swiss club EV Zug. That ment that this was maybe his last chance to win the Swedish Championship. And finally Hållberg got his gold when Färjestad defeated Frölunda HC with 4-2 in best-of-seven series. The same season Hållberg also played with the Swedish national team, and also their he won a gold medal at the World Championship.
