Helguson's eighth goal of the season put Cardiff into the lead as they beat fellow promotion hopefuls Hull City 2-1 on Saturday.
The striker won the Championship title with QPR in 2011 and Gunnarsson is hoping he can help Cardiff to achieve the same this season.
He said: "Heidar is an important player for us. He played a big part in getting QPR up. He scored a lot of goals there and knows how to get a team up the league. Hopefully he will help us do that this year."
Gunnarsson also praised his team-mate's bravery for the opening goal which left him needing treatment off the pitch.
He added: "You're not going to see anyone else go for a header like that, but Heidar is going to put his head in for the team and get a goal. He's a brave player and is good to have in the team.
"His nose was bleeding but he wasn't going to come off - there was no chance of that. He has a lot of experience and we need players like that in this league."
