Four youngest players ever according to Aftonbladet
• Mats Näslund, Timrå,16 år, 3 mån, 19 dagar.
född 1959 - debut 19 feb 1976.
• Thomas Steen, Leksand,16 år, 7 mån, 32 dagar.
född 1960 - debut 6 feb 1977.
• Nicklas Bäckström, Brynäs,16 år, 10 mån, 26 dagar.
född 1987 - debut 19 okt 2004.
• Peter Madach, HV, 16 år, 11 mån, 22 dagar.
född 1963 - debut 14 jan 1980.
as expected Aftonbladet has wrong in some cases. Niklas Sundström played 9 games in 91/92 and since he was born on the 6th of June 1975 he was younger then Bäckström and Madach when he made his debut. He could have been younger then Steen as well but I am not sure when Niklas played his first game.
Per Hållberg played in the season 94/95 and he was born 24th of March 1978. I believe Per made his debut in one of the last games of the season but I guess he was younger then Madach atleast.
Ola Svanberg also played before he turned 17. Played two games in 01/02 and since he is born 10th of June 1985 he was for sure younger then both Bäckström and Madach.
Daniel Rydmark 1970-02-23
Played 4 games in 86/87. Should have been under 17 but not sure when he made his debut.
Stefan Ketola 1972-02-09
Played one game 88/89 for AIK. Could have been under 17.
Jonas Håkansson 1974-01-04
Played 8 games for MIF 90/91. Could have been under 17.
Edvin Frylen 1975-12-23
Played 16! games in 90/91. For sure one of the youngest ever in the SEL. If he only played the last 16 games it means that his debut was latest in Jan 91 and he was just 16 years and a few days. We have a new leader!
Mikael Andersson 1966-05-10
Played one game in 82/83 and scored a goal in that game. Was way under 17 and younger then Madach atleast.
