Patric Göran Kjellberg (born June 17, 1969 in Trelleborg, Sweden) is a Swedish professional ice hockey left wing. He was drafted in the fourth round, 83rd overall, by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft.

Drafted from the Swedish Elite League's AIK, Kjellberg made his North American professional debut during the 1992–93 season with Montreal's AHL affiliate, the Fredericton Canadiens. He also made his NHL debut that same season with Montreal, appearing in seven games.[1] After the season, however, Kjellberg returned to Sweden and played five more seasons in Elitserien.

Kjellberg returned to the NHL in the 1998–99 season to play with the Nashville Predators. He was traded during the 2001–02 season to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in exchange for Petr Tenkrat.

In his NHL career, Kjellberg appeared in 394 games. He scored 64 goals and added 96 assists. He also appeared in ten Stanley Cup playoff games with Anaheim during the 2003 playoffs, going scoreless.

After his player career, Kjellberg has worked for Leksands IF as sports manager.[2]
