Google translation of the Elite Prospect bio:
Lundvall is generally said to be Sweden's first two-way player; always responsible in the defensive [zone] and probably would have done well as a back. At the 57 World Championships, Lasse accounted for 6 of the Tre Kronor's 62 goals. At the 1960 Olympics in Squaw Valley, Lasse was the team's leading scorer with 8 goals.
