Anders "Masken" Carlsson (born 25 November 1960 in Gävle, Sweden) is a retired ice hockey center who played parts of three seasons with the New Jersey Devils in the National Hockey League and many seasons in the Elitserien for Brynäs IF, Södertälje SK, Västerås IK and Leksands IF.

The New Jersey Devils chose him 66th overall in the 1986 NHL Entry Draft. Carlsson left Sweden and joined the Devils' organization. He stayed in North America for three seasons, playing in a total of 104 games and scoring 7 goals and 26 assists. But he split his time between the Devils and the minor pros and was discouraged by not becoming an NHL regular and returned to Sweden in 1990.

In addition to playing in the 1987 Canada Cup, he represented Sweden six times at the World Championships, winning gold medals in 1987 and 1991, and silver medals in 1986, 1990 and 1997.
