Andreas Wingerli Taking a Chance on the NHL with the Avalanche

Swedish center looks to expand his game playing in North America

by Tanner Fricke / ColoradoAvalanche.com

Forward Andreas Wingerli has been playing professional hockey for years in the Swedish Hockey League. He's a speedy, skillful center who has seen success and sustained improvement playing in that league and is ready to take his game to North America.

His pro experience in Sweden speaks for itself. The center represented Sweden at the 2021 IIHF World Championship in Latvia, and he recorded three points (one goal, two assists) in seven games at the tournament. In the SHL, he has played six full seasons with Skelleftea, recording 104 points (48 goals, 56 assists) in 288 contests. The Lycksele, Sweden, native also served as an alternate captain in two seasons.

Now, Wingerli is taking a leap of faith to further improve his craft. He signed a one-year deal with the Colorado Avalanche on June 3, moving his life to North America, and lending his talents to the NHL.
