Kristian Huselius (born November 10, 1978) is a Swedish professional ice hockey player who currently plays for the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League.

Huselius' hometown is Haninge, a town near Stockholm. He was drafted 47th overall at the 1997 NHL Entry Draft by the Florida Panthers and entered the NHL in 2002. A fast, skillful playmaker, Huselius typically plays on the wings, and spent the early part of his career in the Swedish Elitserien, playing for Hammarby IF, Färjestads BK and Frölunda. The Panthers traded him to the Calgary Flames on December 2, 2005, where he managed 39 points in 54 games, adjusting well despite fears by some analysts that he would not fit into Calgary's physical, defensive playing style. In the 2006–07 NHL season, he held a point-streak of fifteen games, second-highest in the NHL that season. Huselius also garnered a career-high 77 points that season, scoring 34 goals and adding 43 assists. During the 2007–08 season Huselius recorded his first NHL hat trick against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

On July 2, 2008, Huselius signed a 4-year, $19 million dollar contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets. He recorded 21 goals during his first season with the Blue Jackets and also scored a goal during the Blue Jackets first round playoff loss at the hands of the Detroit Red Wings; it was the Blue Jackets first ever appearance in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
