</div></div> Roger Åkerström (born April 5, 1967) is a Swedish retired professional ice hockey player, currently employed as an assistant coach with the Luleå HF of the Elitserien.

Playing career Edit

Born in Överkalix, Åkerström grew up in Luleå. He was drafted in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft in the ninth round as 170th overall by the Vancouver Canucks, but he never played a single National Hockey League (NHL) game. As a skater, apart from the fact that Åkerström played for Luleå HF in 19 of his professional seasons, he is perhaps best known for being a former record holder as the player with most Elitserien games—regulation and playoff games included—with 911 games, 792 of these with Luleå HF. This record, however, was beaten on 22 September 2011 when Linköpings HC forward Mikael Håkanson played his 912th Elitserien game.[1]

Apart from Luleå HF, Åkerström also played three seasons for Västerås IK in the same league. He also spent one season in Italy, with the Bolzano-Bozen Foxes of the Serie A league. Internationally, Åkerström participated at the 1993 and 1994 World Ice Hockey Championships as a member of the Sweden men's national team. He retired from ice hockey after the 2006–07 season, which he played with Luleå HF.
