Mattias Sjögren (born November 27, 1987) is a Swedish professional ice hockey centre who briefly played for the Washington Capitals organization of the National Hockey League during the 2011-2012 season.

On June 1, 2011, the Washington Capitals signed Sjögren to a two year contract, reportedly worth 1.8 million dollars.[1]

In November 2011, Sjogren elected to return to Sweden, allowable by his contract, after becoming displeased with the Capitals for not calling him up from the Hershey Bears for an extended period of time. General Manager George McPhee said, "When we signed him,we told him we had a job available and promised him we’d give him a look this year. His training camp wasn’t good enough to keep him at the start of the year and he was developing OK, but I guess he got impatient and decided to go home. And if you’re going to quit on us you might as well go." [2]

Sjoren played for Sweden in the 2011 IIHF World Championship.
