Jenni Anna Christina Asserholt (born 8 April 1988) is a Swedish retired ice hockey player and currently serves as team physical therapist to HV71 Dam of the Swedish Women's Hockey League (SDHL). She played as a forward[1] with HV71 Dam and Linköping HC Dam in the SDHL and with the Swedish women's national ice hockey team. She won a silver medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics.[2]
