Liam Öhgren is a 2022 NHL Draft eligible prospect, who hails from Stockholm, Sweden and is in the Djurgården system. Öhgren’s father, Andreas Öhgren had played Division 1 Swedish professional hockey in the 1990s. His brother, Noel Öhgren is a 2024 NHL Draft eligible prospect, who plays for Djurgården’s J18 club. In his youth, he played for Huddinge IK before joining the Djurgården organization in 2019. Since joining Djurgården, he has suited up for the club at the U16, J18, J20 and SHL level. 

This season, he split his time between the SHL and J20. He led the J20 club in points and was second in total points for J20 NHL Draft eligible prospects. Frölunda’s Ludwig Persson led all 2022 NHL Draft eligible prospects in J20 play with 61 total points. Three points more than Öhgren.

On the international stage, Öhgren has suited up for Sweden at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup and at the U18 World Junior Championships in Germany. His Hlinka Gretzky performance was quite strong and he managed to record four goals and three assists in five tournament games. He was also very impactful for Sweden at the U18s and his nine points in six games helped to secure gold for Sweden.
