1 NHL Game
November 18, 2006 Detroit Red Wings vs Edmonton Oilers. 4-3 loss.
Stefan Liv was drafted by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2000 NHL entry draft but did not come to North America until 2006. He signed a one year deal with Detroit, it would be his only season away from Europe. Liv had become a decorated netminder in Sweden, winning the Eliteserien's 2002 goalie of the year honors. In 2006 he won an Olympic Gold Medal as Sweden's third string goalie.
With Chris Osgood suffering from a hand injury the Red Wings had Dominik Hasek and Joey MacDonald to guard their net November, 2006. Relying on an old Dominik Hasek, the Red Wings opted to sit him out entirely when it was decided that Joey MacDonald would be given the start on November 18th. Detroit did not want Hasek seeing any game action without the benefit of a prolonged warm-up. Stefan Liv was called to serve as MacDonald's backup for just one game while Hasek rested in the stands.
On September 7, 2011 Liv and 43 other passengers, most his teammates, died when their plane crashed off a runway in Russia. He was only 30 years old.
- Wore #32 with Detroit Red Wings
