Maria Omberg (born 18 January 1995) is a Swedish semi-retired ice hockey goaltender. She played eight seasons in the Swedish Women's Hockey League (SDHL) and won the Swedish Championship three times with Luleå HF/MSSK. Omberg made several appearances with the Swedish national team.

Career[edit]

Omberg began her Riksserien career with HV71 in 2012, playing in six games. She would join Timrå for the 2013–14 season, and then took over the Munksund-Skuthamns SK (MSSK) starting job in 2014–15. After MSSK merged with Luleå HF in 2015, she stayed with the club, becoming the starter for Luleå HF/MSSK. In 2015–16, she spent some time with Luleå HF's men's U20 team.

Though she never finished a season with Luleå below a .929 save percentage, in her first years with the team she was described by many in the media as a weak spot in the squad, until her playoff performances proved otherwise, including posting a .956 save percentage in the 2018 championship win.[1][2]

In 2019, she announced her retirement from top-level competition.[3][4] She made a brief comeback with Luleå in the second half of the 2019–20 SDHL season, after Minatsu Murase left the club, before the season was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Sweden.[5][6]

International[edit]

Omberg served as the starting goaltender for Sweden at the 2018 4 Nations Cup.[7]
