Anders Kallur (born July 6, 1952 in Ludvika, Sweden) is a Swedish retired professional ice hockey player.

Kallur played for Modo Hockey and Södertälje SK before moving to Djurgårdens IF in 1978. He was awarded Guldpucken as the best player of the 1978–79 season.[1] He was signed by New York Islanders in 1979 and played his entire North American career with that team (except for two games with Indianapolis Checkers).

Kallur was part of the first NHL team (1979-80 New York Islanders) to win a Stanley Cup with Europeans on its roster.[2] He played with Islanders during their entire 4 Stanley Cup wins from 1980 to 1983.[3] Together with fellow Swede Stefan Persson he was the first European player to win the Stanley Cup. Kallur is currently a scout within the New York Rangers organization focusing on European prospects.[4]
