Joakim Henrik Tömmernes (born 28 August 1990) is a Swedish professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for and is an alternate captain of Genève-Servette HC of the National League (NL). He was drafted by the Vancouver Canucks in the seventh-round, 210th overall, of the 2011 National Hockey League Entry Draft. Tömmernes played four seasons with Frölunda HC in the Elitserien before moving to North America to join the Canucks minor league affiliate in Utica.
Tömmernes played junior hockey Färjestad BK in the J18 Elit. In 2006–07 season, his first with the team, Tömmernes helped them win the J18 Allsvenskan championship. The following season he helped Färjestad back to the championship where they finished second. Tömmernes led all South Division defenceman in assists and points. Prior to the 2008–09 season Tömmernes moved to Frölunda HC in the J20 SuperElit once he became to old for the U18 team. He continued to contribute points from the blue line leading all South Division defenders in goals, assists, and points. He also made his Elitserien debut playing in 11 games with Frölunda's top team. In the off season Tömmernes signed a two-year contract with Frölunda.
In the first year of his contract Tömmernes played four games in the J20 SuperElit recording a goal and an assist. For the majority of the season he played in the SHL and also played 23 games for Borås HC in the HockeyAllsvenskan while on loan from Frölunda. During the 2010–11 season Tömmernes suffered a knee injury in the opening game. He returned to play in 47 games registering a career high 20 points. Following the end of the season the National Hockey League's (NHL) Vancouver Canucks drafted Tömmernes in the seventh round, 210th overall, in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. Despite being drafted Tömmernes agreed to return with Frölunda on a one-year contract. Tömmernes was injured again in the 2011–12 season, suffering a broken jaw. In 44 games he increased his goal production from three to five, but his overall point production fell to 14. He again signed a one-year contract extension with Frölunda at the season's end.
Following the completion of the 2012–13 season Tömmernes and Vancouver agreed to terms on a three-year entry-level contract. He joined the Canucks for training camp and played in the preseason registering two assists. He failed to make the team and was assigned to Vancouver's American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Utica Comets.
In the 2014–15 season, continuing with the Utica Comets but unable to earn a call-up to the Canucks, on 8 January 2015, Tömmernes was placed on unconditional waivers in order for a mutual termination of his NHL contract. On 11 January 2015, Tömmernes returned to Europe in signing for the remainder of the season with Finnish club, Tappara.
