Anton Blomqvist (born March 7, 1990) is a Swedish professional ice hockey defenceman who is currently playing for the IK Oskarshamn in the HockeyAllsvenskan (Swe.1).


Playing career

Before coming to North America, Blomqvist played over 100 games of professional hockey with the Swedish Malmö Redhawks in HockeyAllsvenskan and European Trophy. He was selected by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 6th round (167th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. During the 2010–11 season, he left the Redhawks and signed a three-year entry level contract with the Blue Jackets on March 17, 2011.

In his two years in North America he was assigned to the Blue Jackets American Hockey League affiliate, the Springfield Falcons and the Evansville IceMen of the ECHL. After making a negligible impact, Blomqvist returned on loan to Malmö for the final year of his contract with Columbus on June 18, 2013.

As an impending free agent with the Blue Jackets on May 22, 204, Blomqvist opted to remain in the HockeyAllsvenskan signing with IK Oskarshamn.
