Anders Andersson - Skellefteċ - (1937-1989)

Hälsningar Swedes,

I'm not sure I'm going to get too far with this topic, but I figure it's worth a try. I'm trying to research Anders "Akka" Andersson who played for Skellefteċ in the 1950's and 60's before the Elitserien was formed. I see his international resume and his awards (a rare two-time Guldpucken winner) and spotty stats as provided by eliteprospects. Though, I didn't get a great translation from his profile page. It appears he was a player with much drive and determination, but I'm not totally clear what the rest of the page says. It translates a little rough to English.

I tried to use Google News, with no luck, even looking for Swedish papers (Aftonbladet?) and then translating later...but they just don't have much in the way of Swedish newspapers.

I can deal with the difference in language, I just don't know where to begin if I wanted to research him. Any tips on how to research a historic Swedish player?
