Johan Carl William Sjöberg Sundström (born September 21, 1992) is a Swedish ice hockey player who is currently playing professionally in his native Sweden with Frölunda HC in the Swedish Hockey League (SHL).

Playing career[edit]

Sundström originally signed a two-year contract with Frölunda in September 2010.[1] He scored his first Elitserien goal on December 4, 2010, against Andreas Andersson of HV71.[2] Ultimately, Sundström played 41 games out of the 55 regular season games. He joined Frölunda's J20 team for the J20 playoffs.[3] His team went on to the final, where they won 6–3 against Skellefteå AIK.[3] He was drafted by the New York Islanders in the second round, 50th overall, in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

After completing his three-year entry-level contract with the Islanders and featuring in only 11 NHL games in that span, Sundström opted to return to Frölunda as a restricted free agent from the Islanders on a two-year contract on June 12, 2015.[4]
