Playing careerEdit

Borgman made his Elitserien debut playing with Timrå IK during the 2012–13 Elitserien season, playing three Elitserien games that season.[1]

After spending the 2015–16 season in the Allsvenskan with VIK Västerås HK, Borgman returned to the SHL in signing a two-year contract with HV71 on 31 March 2016.[2] In his debut season with HV71 in the 2016–17 season, Borgman appeared in 45 regular season games from the blueline collecting 15 points. In the post-season, Borgman co-led the league in scoring amongst defenseman with 2 goals and 10 points in 14 games, helping HV71 claim the Le Mat Trophy.[3] In addition to the championship, Borgman was selected as the SHL's Rookie of the Year.[4]

On 16 May 2017, Borgman was signed a two-year, entry-level contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs, alongside fellow Swedish defenceman Calle Rosén.[5]

Borgman scored his first NHL point against the Winnipeg Jets on 4 October 2017.[6] He scored his first NHL goal against San Jose Sharks' Martin Jones on 30 October 2017. The goal was originally awarded to teammate Nazem Kadri, with Borgman picking up his third official assist, but it was later awarded back to Borgman.[7] It was assured to fans on the Leafs PR Twitter that Borgman got his first NHL goal puck.[8] On 5 February, 2018, Borgman was loaned to the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League (AHL) after teammate Roman Polák was activated from the injured reserve.[9][10]
