Playing career

Lilja was drafted in the 2nd round, 54th overall by the Los Angeles Kings in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. During the 2002–03 NHL season, Lilja was traded to the Florida Panthers where he played for the remainder of the season. In the summer of 2004, he was signed by the Nashville Predators, but never played for them because of the NHL lockout, during which he played for Mora IK and the Malmö IF Redhawks of Elitserien, as well as HC Ambri-Piotta of the Swiss National League A. Once the lockout ended, he was signed to a one-year deal by the Detroit Red Wings. After playing in all 82 regular season games for the Red Wings in the 2005–06 NHL season, he was re-signed by the team to a two-year deal in the summer of 2006. Lilja was re-signed again to another two-year deal in the summer of 2008.
