Jonsson was drafted by the New York Islanders in the 1979 NHL Entry Draft in the 2nd round, as the 25th pick overall. During the 1980 World Junior Championships he together with Tomas Jonsson were appointed best defencemen of tournament.[1] Jonsson made his debut for the Islanders in the 1981–82 season and he won a Stanley Cup championship with the team in his first season. The following season the team won the cup again.

Jonsson played with the Islanders until 1989 when he was traded to the Edmonton Oilers. He only played with the Oilers for the rest of that season, 1988–89. After that he moved back to Sweden and played with Leksands IF until 1998. He was named Swedish Player of the Year in 1994–95.
