2008-09: Anton Blomqvist posted 16 points in 31 games for Malmö's under-20 team.
2009-10: Blomqvist stepped up into the Allsvenskan full time for Malmö, appearing in 49 games with 3 goals, 2 assists for 5 points. He was held scoreless in five postseason games.
2010-11: Blomqvist skated in five AHL games with Springfield, making his North American debut in April 2011 after competing for Malmo in AllSvenskan in his native Sweden. He had 1 assist and was an even plus/minus with 21 PMs in his stint with the Falcons, who failed to reach the AHL playoffs. Blomqvist skated in 27 games for Malmo as a 20-year-old and was an even plus/minus with 1 assist and 14 PMs.
2011-12: Blomqvist was with the AHL's Springfield Falcons but missed all but 24 games due to an unspecified injury. He finished the season plus-two with no points and 19 penalty minutes.
2012-13: Blomqvist played for the ECHL's Evansville Icemen in his second pro season and was limited to 36 games due to injury. He scored 1 goal with 2 assists and was -14 with 46 penalty minutes. The Icemen finished last in the North Division with the ECHL's second-worst record.
While Blomqvist is a huge defender and has been compared to Niklas Kronwall, he hasn’t shown that he can play at the elite level. He is big, but slow and easily drawn out of position.
After agreeing to terms with Malmo for a one-year contract, Blomqvist will return to Allsvenskan. This will give him a chance to find his game after he struggled in North America. If he returns Columbus will still own his rights.
