Tomas Sandström (born September 4, 1964) is a retired Swedish professional ice hockey right winger who played in the National Hockey League (NHL) from 1984 to 1999. He grew up in Fagersta, Sweden.

Sandström was selected 36th overall by the New York Rangers in the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. He played 983 career NHL games, scoring 394 goals and 462 assists for 856 points. He also registered 1,193 career penalty minutes. He won a Stanley Cup in 1997 with the Detroit Red Wings.

A power forward, he was effective when healthy but his career was marred by injuries due to his physical style of play, particularly after a 1988 fight that left him with a scratched cornea and broken cheekbone.

Sandström was a key component of the Kings' run to the 1993 Stanley Cup Finals, after missing most of the regular season with a broken jaw. Sandström finished third in playoff scoring after Wayne Gretzky and Doug Gilmour.
