HOW THE DEVIL ARE YOU?

Pretty good.

IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT AND YOU'RE NOT PLAYING. WHATCHA GONNA DO?

Just hang out with my family. We just came to Calgary and have to settle in.

PICK FIVE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF.

That's not easy. A normal Swede, I guess.

WHAT WERE YOU LIKE AT SCHOOL?

A pretty good student.

WHAT'S YOUR MOST TREASURED MATERIAL POSSESSION?

My watch. It's nothing special but I have to wear it all the time or I feel so empty. I always need a watch.

WHAT'S YOUR POISON?

Just a Coke.

WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU PUNCHED AND WHY?

I don't punch that often.

WHAT'S THE MOST RIDICULOUS THING YOU'VE EVER BOUGHT?

I don't know. I don't buy stuff I'm not going to use.

WHAT'S THE BEST ADVICE YOU EVER RECEIVED?

From my dad: If you're healthy, be happy and take advantage of your situation.

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CAR?

A Renault Migum.

WHAT REPAIRS COULD YOU PERFORM ON YOUR CAR?

Nothing.

WHAT'S YOUR CULINARY SPECIALTY?

For sure, spaghetti and meatballs.

SWEDISH MEATBALLS?

Oh yeah.

WHAT'S YOUR CELLPHONE RINGTONE?

It's a weird one.

WHAT TV SERIES DO YOU WANT ON DVD?

CSI.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE UNHEALTHY FOOD?

Pizza. I like the pizza more in Europe. It's different from over here, thin crust with chicken, pineapple.

WHAT'S THE BEST CONCERT YOU'VE SEEN?

I haven't seen that many. When I was 10 or 11 years old, I saw Europe. That was pretty neat going to a concert really young.

IF YOU WEREN'T A HOCKEY PLAYER, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING?

I have no idea.

DO YOU COLLECT YOUR OWN MEMORABILIA?

No.

WHAT TRAIT DO YOU ADMIRE MOST IN PEOPLE?

Honesty.

DO YOU LIKE SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS?

Oh yeah. It's fun. Not a problem at all.

DO YOU HAVE A PET?

No.

WHAT WAS THE BEST YEAR OF YOUR LIFE?

When my daughter Stella was born, so 2004.

YOU HAVE A FEW HOURS TO KILL. BOOK OR VIDEO GAME?

Video game. World Series of Poker. It's just for fun.

WHAT'S YOUR GREATEST FEAR?

Snakes. I hate snakes.

WHAT'S YOUR WORST HABIT?

I like candy.

WHAT MOVIE MADE YOU TEARY-EYED?

The Patriot with Mel Gibson.

EVER ORDER PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING ON PPV?

No. I would never do it, either.

STRANGEST PIECE OF FAN MAIL?

Nothing unusual, actually. Just the same thing all the time, cards to sign.

ANY SUPERSTITIONS?

When I put my gear on, it's left side first. Left skate, left shinpad, left elbow pad. It's more a habit.

UGLIEST THING IN YOUR WARDROBE?

A yellow Hawaiian shirt.

COULD YOU BE CONVINCED TO KARAOKE AND, IF SO, WHAT'S YOUR SONG?

I'd never sing karaoke. I don't have the voice for that, that's for sure.
