Playing career

Liv is the starting goaltender in HV71 and is often chosen for the Swedish national team; on December 22, 2005, he was named as third goaltender to Team Sweden for the 2006 Winter Olympics.[3] He wears the glove on his left hand. He is agile; quick in moving from side to side; good with close-range shots;[4] and his unorthodox style reminds some of Dominik Hašek.[5]

Liv played his first Elite League game in Sweden on January 18, 2000, in Jönköping for his team HV71 against Luleå HF. His first national appearance was in a match against Czech Republic, also in Jönköping, on November 9, 2000. Liv was drafted in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft by Detroit Red Wings with their 3rd round, in the 102nd overall selection.[6]

Liv signed a one-year contract with the Red Wings in May 2006,[5] but started season 2006–07 playing for the Grand Rapids Griffins in the AHL.[7] He was recalled by the Red Wings on November 17, 2006.[8] On November 26, 2006, Liv was back with the Grand Rapids playing against Houston Aeros. Two days later, Liv was assigned to Toledo Storm in ECHL when the Grand Rapids recalled goalie Logan Koopmans.[9] He was later recalled by the Grand Rapids.

After one season with the Detroit Red Wings' organization, playing mostly for the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL, totalling a save percentage of 89.5 over 34 games, he signed a three year contract with his former Swedish club HV71.[10] He continued season 2007–08 by winning the Swedish Championship and was awarded Guldpucken as the player of the year in the Swedish Elite League.[11]
