Magnus Nygren (born June 7, 1990) is a Swedish professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for Färjestad BK of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). Nygren was the 113th overall pick by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

On May 21, 2013, he was signed to a two-year entry level contract with the Montreal Canadiens.[1] During his first season in North America in 2013–14, Nygren was assigned to American Hockey League affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs. However after 16 games Nygren opted to return home to play on loan with Färjestad BK on November 27, 2013.[2]

Nygren returned to the Bulldogs for the final year of his contract with the Canadiens, however was limited to 15 games due to injury. At season's end, Nyrgen unsurprisingly returned to Färjestad BK on a one-year contract for the 2015–16 season on May 8, 2015.[3]
