Kim Emil Jorgen Johnsson (born March 16, 1976) is a Swedish former professional ice hockey defenceman who played ten seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, Minnesota Wild and Chicago Blackhawks. He played six seasons for the Malmö Redhawks in the Swedish Elitserien prior to his NHL career.
Johnsson was selected 286th overall by the New York Rangers in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft, the last pick in that draft. After playing two seasons with the Rangers, he was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers on August 20, 2001, along with Jan Hlaváč, Pavel Brendl, and a 3rd-round pick for Eric Lindros. After four seasons with the Flyers, Johnsson signed a four-year contract with the Minnesota Wild on July 1, 2006. On February 12, 2010, Johnsson and Nick Leddy were traded to the Chicago Blackhawks for Cam Barker. He played 8 regular season games for Chicago before getting injured. Johnsson missed the remaining 14 regular season games and all 22 playoff games because of a concussion. Johnsson did play 60 games in the 2009–10 season. However, he did not play 41 games for Chicago, and Chicago did not request his name be included among the 52 names engraved on the Stanley Cup. Johnsson never played again after receiving his concussion.
