Mikael Tellqvist (born September 19, 1979, in Sundbyberg, Sweden) is a professional Swedish ice hockey goaltender, currently with Ak Bars Kazan in the Kontinental Hockey League.

Tellqvist was drafted 70th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. He had played a total of 14 games for the Leafs (before the 2005–06 season), spending most of his time in the minors with St. John's.

At the end of the 2005–06 season when regular Leafs' goaltender Ed Belfour was injured, Tellqvist played in two consecutive games against the Montreal Canadiens when the Leafs were struggling to make the playoffs near the end of the season. He struggled in those games, letting in 11 total goals. Following the second game, he was replaced by the Leafs' third-string goaltender, Jean-Sébastien Aubin.
