Guldpucken (The Golden Puck) is awarded annually to the ice hockey player of the year in Sweden. It is similar to the NHL's Hart Memorial Trophy. Normally it goes to a player in the Swedish Hockey League (SHL), the top-level ice hockey league in Sweden. It should not be confused with Guldhjälmen (The Golden Helmet), the award for the most valuable player according to the players in the SHL.
This award has only gone to four players twice: Anders Andersson, Leif Holmqvist, Peter Forsberg, and Erik Karlsson. No player has won it three times. The sculpture Guldpucken is made by the Swedish artist Rune Hannäs.
