Jonas Karl Rönnqvist (born 22 August 1973 in Kalix, Sweden) is a former professional ice hockey player who played in the National Hockey League for the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.

Playing career[edit]

Drafted 98th overall by the Ducks in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft from Swedish side Luleå HF, Rönnqvist played 38 regular season games during the 2000–01 NHL season, scoring four assists and collecting 14 penalty minutes. After spending the entirety of the 2001–02 season with the Ducks' AHL affiliate the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks, Rönnqvist returned to Luleå where he remained until his retirement in 2005, caused by an injury.

Coaching career[edit]

Rönnqvist coached Almtuna in the Swedish secondary league, almost clinching a surprising promotion to the Swedish Elite League in 2010. That earned Rönnqvist a contract to coach Luleå, his former club as a player.
