Andreas Lilja (born July 13, 1975 in Helsingborg, Sweden) is a professional ice hockey defenceman from Helsingborg, Sweden, currently playing for the Anaheim Ducks in the National Hockey League.

Lilja was drafted in the 2nd round, 54th overall by the Los Angeles Kings in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. During the 2002–03 NHL season, Lilja was traded to the Florida Panthers where he played for the remainder of the season. In the summer of 2004, he was signed by the Nashville Predators, but never played for them because of the NHL lockout, during which he played for Mora IK and the Malmö IF Redhawks of Elitserien, as well as HC Ambri-Piotta of the Swiss National League A. Once the lockout ended, he was signed to a 1 year deal by the Detroit Red Wings. After playing in all 82 regular season games for the Red Wings in the 2005–06 NHL season, he was re-signed by the team to a two year deal in the summer of 2006. Lilja was re-signed yet again to another two year deal in the summer of 2008.

Lilja won the 2008 Stanley Cup as a member of the Red Wings. He is also one of 9 native Swedes who played for the team at that time. He normally sees time on the Red Wings penalty killing unit, and is a skilled shot blocker.
