Swedish World All-Star Team (1994) WC-A All-Star Team (1994) Best Defenseman at WC-A (1994)
Traded to Florida by Calgary with Robert Svehla for Florida's 3rd round choice (Dmitri Vlasenkov) in 1996 Entry Draft and cash, September 29, 1994.

— Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon on rookie defenseman Aaron Ekblad
