Toni Lydman is a Finnish defenseman on the Anaheim Ducks.

Lydman was drafted by the Calgary Flames in 1996. He played with Tappara and HIFK of the Finnish SM-liiga until 2000, when he joined Calgary. His best season came in his sophomore year, when he finished with 6 goals and 28 points. He was traded to Buffalo after the lockout, and has been a consistent performer on the Sabres, finishing 16th overall in hits in the ‘07-08 season. Lydman has improved his defensive game with the Sabres, and has generally been reliable to produce around 20 points with a solid +/- rating. With Scott Niedermayer’s retirement, the Ducks will be looking to add some offense from their blueline without giving up defensive responsibility,so Lydman will have a chance to play big minutes if he can impress the coaching staff.

Lydman won a silver medal with Finland at the 2006 Winter Olympics, as well as a bronze at the 2010 Games in Vancouver.
