Playing careerEdit

On May 21, 2013, he was signed to a two-year entry level contract with the Montreal Canadiens.[1] During his first season in North America in 2013–14, Nygren was assigned to American Hockey League affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs. However after 16 games Nygren opted to return home to play on loan with Färjestad BK on November 27, 2013.[2]

Nygren returned to the Bulldogs for the final year of his contract with the Canadiens, however was limited to 15 games due to injury. At season's end, Nyrgen unsurprisingly returned to Färjestad BK on a one-year contract for the 2015–16 season on May 8, 2015.[3]

On April 12, 2017, Nygren agreed to a one-year contract with HC Davos of the National League (NL).[4]
