Guldhjälmen (The Gold Helmet) is a Swedish ice hockey award, which is awarded annually to the Swedish Hockey League (SHL)'s most valuable player as decided by a vote of its players.

First awarded in 1986, the Guldhjälmen is sponsored by the Swedish hockey magazine Hockey in cooperation with Jofa. It is considered one of the most prestigious ice hockey prizes in Sweden. It is similar to the country's Viking Award, presented to the top Swede playing in North America as determined by player vote, and the NHL's Ted Lindsay Award, an MVP award also voted on by the players. It should not be confused with Guldpucken (Golden Puck), which is awarded to the Swedish player of the year.


Players in bold type also won that season's Guldpucken.
