The Viking Award is awarded annually to the best Swedish ice hockey player in North America. The winner is decided by a vote among all Swedish-born players participating in the NHL or the NHL farm-team leagues. Only Mats Sundin has received the award four times. Peter Forsberg, Markus Näslund, Börje Salming, Henrik Zetterberg and Erik Karlsson have received it three times.
