• Larsson is currently competing in the Elitserien championship final against Frajestad after Skellefea AIK defeated Linkoping 4-3 and Lulea 4-2 in the first two rounds.
• Playing in his second full season with Skelleftea in 2010-11, he was only the third defenseman to make his Elite League debut at 16 years of age, following in the footsteps of long-time NHL defenseman Calle Johansson and current Tampa Bay blueliner Victor Hedman. His first game remains his most memorable hockey moment -- “I had been sitting in the stands since age seven, now I was playing”.
• He represented Sweden at the 2010 and 2011 World Junior Championship, finishing as the team's highest scoring defender at the tournament in 2011 with four points (1-3--4). Sweden won a bronze medal in 2010 and finished fourth in 2011.
• Larsson also represented Sweden at the 2010 Under-18 World Championships, where he was named the best defenseman of the tournament and to the media all-star team. He recorded three points (2-1--3) and a plus-two rating helping lead his team to a silver medal.
• His father, Robert, played 249 games with Skelleftea from 1985-95 and was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the sixth round (No. 112 overall) in 1988.
