Career Pelle Lindbergh Which Short Drunken Crash

THE CAREER OF PELLE LINDBERGH WHICH WAS CUT SHORT DUE TO A DRUNKEN CRASH

SEP 20, 2022  (17H48)      SKY
Pelle Lindbergh, a name long-time Flyers fans are aware of, but some newcomers to the organization may not be. Sadly his life was taken too early, below, we will take a look at a career summary brought to you by Bleacher Report Philadelphia.

He worshipped the Flyers' Bernie Parent. He studied under Parent, purposely wore a mask like Parent and in the 1984-85 season he played like Parent.

He was the little Swedish goalie who loved hockey, loved life and loved playing for the Flyers.

He led the Flyers to the finals that year against the Oilers. Unfortunately, by the time they got there the team and the goalie were all out of bullets. Lindbergh was injured and didn't even play in the final game against Edmonton that year.


He won the Vezina Trophy that season and seemed to pick up where he left off the following year.

Unfortunately, his career and his potential for true greatness—not to mention the most tragic of all, his life—were cut short when he drunkenly crashed his Porsche into a South Jersey elementary school's wall.
