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).
Sundström originally signed a two-year contract with Frölunda in September 2010. He scored his first Elitserien goal on December 4, 2010, against Andreas Andersson of HV71. Ultimately, Sundström played 41 games out of the 55 regular season games. He joined Frölunda's J20 team for the J20 playoffs. His team went on to the final, where they won 6–3 against Skellefteå AIK. 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.
