Hellquist grew up in the Stockholm subrub Kista, and began playing football in Djurgården's youth team at the age of five. He was named for the Swedish U16 national team in a friendly against Latvia in April 2007. The game was his debut in any of the Swedish national teams, and he also scored the last goal in the 6 0 victory. He drew attention from English club Arsenal which offered him a place in their U17-team. No transfer was made due to a hip injury. Hellquist also had a trial at Birmingham City and Italian club Empoli showed interest in him. He began playing with the senior team during the 2008 pre-season. He played his first game in Svenska Cupen in the 4 2 loss against Sirius, and also scored his first goal in the Cup.
