Rolf Lennart Johansson (7 June 1941 – 23 October 2010) was a Swedish ice hockey defender. He was a key figure in Brynäs IF, winning seven national titles as a player (1964, 1966–68 and 1970–72) and then one as a coach in 1980. Internationally he competed only at the 1964 Winter Olympics, where he won a silver medal.[1][2]

After retiring from competitions Johansson worked as a coach, and prepared the Swedish team to the 1976 World Championships. He was later employed at the Culture & Recreation department of the Gävle municipality.[1]
