Oskar Eriksson (born 29 May 1991) is a Swedish curler from Karlstad. He currently plays third for the Niklas Edin rink.

At the 2008 World Junior Curling Championships, Eriksson skipped Team Sweden to a silver medal, losing to the United States in the final, skipped by Chris Plys.

At the 2009 World Junior Curling Championships, Eriksson skipped Sweden to a fourth-place finish. He once again lost to Plys, this time for a different medal colour.

At the 2011 World Junior Curling Championships, Eriksson finally won a gold medal, defeating Switzerland's Peter de Cruz 6–5 in the final.

At those three World Junior Championships, Eriksson won 24 games and lost 9.

At the 2012 World Men's Curling Championship, Eriksson played all games except three because the permanent skip, Niklas Edin, had a bad back(herniated disc). Team Sweden won a bronze medal.
