Carl Grundström (born 1 December 1997) is a Swedish professional ice hockey forward. He is currently playing with the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL). Grundström was selected in the second round, 57th overall, by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.
Grundström made his Swedish Hockey League debut playing with Modo Hockey during the 2014–15 SHL season. Following Modo's relegation to the HockeyAllsvenskan at the conclusion of the 2015–16 season, Grundström remained in the SHL in signing a two-year contract with Frölunda HC on April 13, 2016.
In the 2016–17 season, Grundström recorded a career best 14 goals and 20 points in 45 games with Frölunda. On April 28, 2017, Grundström left Frölunda mid-contract, using his NHL exit clause in agreeing to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
After attending the Maple Leafs training camp for the 2017–18 season, Grundström was re-assigned to continue his development on loan in Sweden with Frölunda HC on October 2, 2017. He placed second on the club with 17 goals and finished with 24 points in 35 games. For the second consecutive season he was re-assigned to join the Toronto Marlies in the post-season. He helped the Marlies to claim their first Calder Cup, posting 8 goals and 14 points in 20 playoff games, leading all AHL rookies in playoff scoring.
In his first full season in North America in 2018–19, Grundström continued on assignment with the Toronto Marlies. He collected 29 points in 42 games before he was traded by the Maple Leafs, along with prospect Sean Durzi and a 2019 first-round draft pick to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Jake Muzzin on January 28, 2019. He was immediately re-assigned to join the Kings' AHL affiliate, the Ontario Reign, but was called up on March 9, 2019 and made his NHL debut, where he scored his first NHL goal.
