Andreas Gustaf Engqvist (born December 23, 1987) is a Swedish professional ice hockey centre who is currently an unrestricted free agent. He most recently played for the Salavat Yulaev Ufa of the KHL.
On July 13, 2009, Engqvist signed a three-year contract with the Montreal Canadiens in the NHL. During the 2009–10 season he played on loan for Djurgårdens IF in the Swedish Elitserien. On January 21, 2011, he played his first NHL game with the Montreal Canadiens, a 7-1 away win against the Ottawa Senators.
On June 17, 2012, Engvist signed a one-year deal with Atlant Moscow Oblast of the KHL. Having signed as a restricted free agent, the Montreal Canadiens retained his rights. After three seasons in the KHL with Moscow Oblast and HC CSKA Moscow, Engqvist opted to continue with his third KHL club, following a trade to Salavat Yulaev Ufa on June 18, 2015.
In the midst of his second season with Salavat in 2016–17, Engqvist appeared in 12 games for 11 points before suffering a season ending injury on September 22, 2016. Opting to continue his rehabilitation in his native Sweden, he mutually agreed to terminate his contract with the club on December 19, 2016.
