The Swedish Ice Hockey Coach of the Year (Swedish: Årets Coach) has been awarded to the best ice hockey coach in Sweden each season since the 1991–92 season. The award was created in honor of Arne Strömberg, and Kamratföreningen Hockeyjournalisterna is the jury which votes on the award.[1] The award has usually gone to a coach in the top-tier league (SHL/Elitserien), although the award is not specific to the top-tier league. Three coaches have won the award twice: Tommy Sandlin in 1991–92 and 1992–93 as head coach of Brynäs IF, Hardy Nilsson in 1999–00 and 2009–10 as coach of Djurgårdens IF, and Roger Melin in 1998–99 and 2010–11 as head coach of Brynäs IF and AIK.
