KJELL DAHLIN BROKE INTO THE NHL WITH A BANG, SCORING 25 GOALS IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE 1985-86 SEASON.

A right winger from Timra, Sweden, Kjell Dahlin was selected 82nd overall by the Canadiens in the fourth round of the 1981 NHL Entry Draft. He earned most valuable player honors that season in the Swedish Elite League, where he continued to star through 1985.

His NHL career got off to a terrific start, scoring 25 goals in the first half of 1985-86. His second-half production dipped, however, with Dahlin managing only seven goals over the final 36 games of the regular season.

His slump continued in the playoffs when he was held to just two goals and three assists in 16 games. Nonetheless, he celebrated the only Stanley Cup Championship of his career that year with the Canadiens.

His 71 regular season points tied the team’s single-season rookie scoring record previously established by teammate Mats Naslund, who took his fellow Swede under his wing upon joining the Canadiens.

His production earned him a spot on the NHL All-Rookie Team along with goalie Patrick Roy, the Canadiens’ 20-year-old netminder.

Nominated for the Calder Trophy as the league’s rookie of the year, Dahlin lost out in voting for the award to Calgary Flames defenseman Gary Suter.

Over the next two seasons, injuries cut into his offensive production, limiting him to just 41 and 48 games, respectively. He decided to return to Sweden where he played six more seasons for Farjestads BK before retiring in 1994.

In 166 games with the Habs, Dahlin had 57 goals and 59 assists for a total of 116 points.
