Johan Svedberg (born February 14, 1980 in Kalix, Sweden) is a defenceman currently playing for the Leksands IF in the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). He has also played three seasons in the Elitserien for Timrå IK.
On April 2, 2004, Johan signed with Timrå IK for one year. Later the same year, on October 27, 2004 Svedberg was named the first in the line of four candidates for Elitserien Rookie Of The Year 2005. The award was eventually won by the forward Oscar Steen. After the rookie season, his contract was extended to 2006-07 on April 8, 2005. On May 8, 2007, following his third season with Timrå, the defenceman joined IF Björklöven in Allsvenskan, a team he stayed with for three seasons before moving on to Leksands IF after the regulation of Björklöven to Division 1 due to financial difficulties.
