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.


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]


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