Tom Malmquist (born 1978) is a Swedish poet and writer, and formerly an ice hockey player.
Malmquist released his first book of poetry, Sudden Death, in 2007. The book was praised by critics as the first sports-oriented book of poetry in Sweden. The book reflects on Malmquist's youth as a hockey player.

“Obviously you don’t have to answer this, but did you doubt your faith when it happened? I ask. The way I usually put it is, prayer is doubt, why else would anyone pray?”
