Playing career

Renberg began his National Hockey League career with the Philadelphia Flyers, who drafted him 40th overall in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. He played with them for four seasons before being traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Chris Gratton; two seasons later the teams would virtually undo the trade, sending him back to Philadelphia for two more years. He was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for Rick Tocchet during the 1999–2000 NHL season. He returned to Sweden to play for Luleå HF for one season and returned to the NHL by signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs. After three seasons in Toronto, Renberg once again returned to play for Luleå HF.

In Philadelphia he became popular with fans for playing on the feared "Legion of Doom" line with John LeClair and Eric Lindros, and helped the team to the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals, where they were swept in four games by the Detroit Red Wings.
