Mattias Ekholm (born May 24, 1990) is a Swedish ice hockey player. He was drafted 102nd overall, fourth round, in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Nashville Predators and is currently playing with the Predators minor league affiliate Milwaukee Admirals in the American Hockey League.
After getting a blazing start with 7 goals and 5 assists in his first 14 games with Brynäs, Ekholm was announced to be the first of four Elitserien Rookie of the Year candidates for the 2010–11 season. He would go on to win the award.
Ekholm played two games with the Predators at the start of the 2011–12 season before returning to Brynäs for the remainder of the season. He also played 1 game with the Predators in the 2013 season against the Vancouver Canucks due to the Predators lineup being decimated by injuries. However, he was reassigned back to the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL the following day after the game.
