Jonas Andersson (born February 24, 1981 in Lidingö, Sweden) is a professional ice hockey player. He currently plays for Dinamo Minsk in the Kontinental Hockey League.

Andersson was selected 33rd overall in the second round of the 1999 NHL Entry Draft by the Nashville Predators.

Andersson played the majority of his North American professional career with the Predators' minor league affiliate the Milwaukee Admirals, but played five games for the Predators in the 2001–02 NHL season.

Andersson failed to live up to his draft status since being picked, being part of the poor 1–2 punch that the Preds selected in 1999, following goaltender Brian Finley. He went back to Sweden in 2004, playing for Södertälje SK and Brynäs IF in Elitserien during the NHL lockout.

He then moved to the Finnish SM-liiga, playing for Ilves in 2005 and HPK in 2006 and 2007. He was traded to Kärpät Oulu mid-season and subsequently won the SM-liiga Championship. During the final series against Espoo, Andersson was the leading scorer with three goals and three assists in five games.

In 2009, Andersson signed with Dinamo Minsk, to play in the Kontinental Hockey League.
