Biography

Lukas Bengtsson (born 14 April 1994) is a Swedish professional ice hockey defenseman. He is currently playing with SKA Saint Petersburg of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).

Playing career

At the youth level, Bengtsson played for Huddinge IK, Djurgårdens IF and Mora IK. He logged his first minutes in Sweden’s second-tier league HockeyAllsvenskan with Mora’s men’s team during the 2011–12 season.

In February 2015, he signed with Frölunda HC of Sweden’s top-flight SHL. He made 42 appearances, recording nine goals as well as 12 assists, as Frölunda won the 2016 SHL title. Bengtsson was also influential in the success that the team enjoyed in the Champions Hockey League: He saw the ice in ten contests, scoring two goals and assisting on five more, helping Frölunda capture the CHL title.

On 27 April 2016, he penned a two-year, entry-level contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League (NHL).

During the 2016 offseason, Bengtsson was diagnosed with Lyme disease and underwent antibiotic treatment. He began training camp with the Penguins, but soon the disease returned and he was placed on injured reserve. He underwent another antibiotic treatment and played his first AHL game for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins on 13 November 2016. After a 6 January 2017 game during which Bengtsson felt exhaustion and intense pain, he was shut down for the season. Further tests revealed he probably never had Lyme disease; instead, in March 2017, Bengtsson was diagnosed with Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. Bengtsson was able to return to play for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton prior to the 2017–18 season.

At the conclusion of his entry-level contract with the Penguins, Bengtsson as an impending restricted free agent opted to return to Sweden, signing a three-year contract with Linköpings HC of the SHL on 18 May 2018. In the 2018–19 season, Bengtsson led the defense of Linköpings in scoring with 7 goals and 24 points in 42 games.

Opting for a release from his only season with Linköping HC, Bengtsson was signed to a lucrative two-year contract with Russian club, SKA Saint Petersburg of the KHL, on 21 May 2019.
