Adam Fox (born February 17, 1998) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman for the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League (NHL).

He played two seasons in the U.S. National Team Development Program, and finished with the record for the most assists in a single season (in 2015-16) and the most assists in a career (in 2014-16).

Fox was selected by the Calgary Flames, 66th overall, in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, but opted to play collegiate ice hockey for Harvard University.

In June 2018, Calgary traded Fox’s NHL rights to the Carolina Hurricanes, who traded them to the New York Rangers in April 2019. He left college a year early, and made his NHL debut for the Rangers in 2019.
