Joel Lundqvist (born March 2, 1982) is a Swedish professional ice hockey centre, currently playing for Frölunda HC of Elitserien. He serves as the team's captain.

Lundqvist was selected by the Dallas Stars in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft (3rd round, 68th overall) and signed a one year entry level two way contract with them in May 2006. He started his 2006 season with the Iowa Stars scoring 38 points in 40 games but was called up and played his first game in Dallas on December 3, 2006. Lundqvist played 7 games in his first NHL playoff series, scoring two goals, and was assigned back to Iowa when Dallas was eliminated.

Lundqvist scored his first career NHL goal against the Calgary Flames on January 17, 2007.

His identical twin brother Henrik had a successful rookie season as a goaltender for the New York Rangers in the 2005–06 season, and continues to be one of the league's best goaltenders. He was afforded the opportunity to play his twin brother on December 14, 2006, in Dallas. It was the first time that a goaltender faced his twin. He and his brother are only the third set of twins to play each other in an NHL game in the history of the league.
