Jenni Anna Christina Asserholt (born 8 April 1988) is a Swedish ice hockey player. She plays the forward position[1] for HV71 in the Swedish Women's Hockey League and for the Sweden women's national ice hockey team. She won a silver medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics.[2]

In 2004 Jenni underwent treatment for her asthma, even though she doesn't experience any asthmatic symptoms as of 2011. She has said that the cold temperatures in ice hockey rinks cause breathing difficulties during her younger years.[3]
