Marco Johann Sturm (born September 8, 1978) is a German professional ice hockey forward for the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League (NHL). He previously played for the San Jose Sharks, Boston Bruins and Los Angeles Kings of the NHL.

Sturm was drafted by the San Jose Sharks in the first round, 21st overall, in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. Sturm scored his first career NHL goal against Jeff Hackett of the Chicago Blackhawks on October 3, 1997. He was then traded to the Boston Bruins on November 30, 2005 with Brad Stuart and Wayne Primeau for Joe Thornton.

A notoriously strong skater, he is often referred to as "the fastest German on ice." His forays into the offensive zone are known as the blitzkrieg. In the 1999 All-Star Game, Sturm had the second best time to Peter Bondra in the fastest skater competition.
