Rasmus Bengtsson (born May 14, 1993) is a Swedish professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing for VIK Västerås HK in Sweden's Allsvenskan. He was drafted in the second round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Florida Panthers with the 59th overall selection.

Bengtsson was named to the 2008–09 Rikspucken All-Star Team. Rikspucken (which translates from Swedish as “National puck”) was a one-time tournament which occurred in 2009 for junior players who became too old for TV-pucken when the Swedish Ice Hockey Association lowered the maximum age from 16 to 15.[1]

He had his breakthrough season playing for Rögle J20 during the 2009–10 season, and signed on for Rögle's senior team in June 2010.[2]
