Viktor Arvidsson (born 8 April 1993) is a Swedish professional ice hockey player who is currently playing for the Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by the Nashville Predators in the fourth round, 112th overall, at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

On 20 March 2015, the Nashville Predators recalled Arvidsson from the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League under emergency conditions, after Colin Wilson suffered a lower-body injury in practice on 19 March 2015.
