Bryan Allen (born August 21, 1980) is a retired Canadian ice hockey player, having played his final year in the NHL split with the Anaheim Ducks (6 games) and Montreal Canadiens (5 games) during the 2014-15 season. Drafted 4th overall by the Vancouver Canucks in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, Allen spent the first five years of his NHL career in Vancouver, becoming a regular during the 2002-03 season. During the summer of 2006, Allen was part of the blockbuster trade that saw Roberto Luongo go from the Florida Panthers to Vancouver. Allen spent five seasons with the Panthers, becoming an alternate captain from 2007 to 2010. His career in the NHL concluded after the 2014-15 season, with the likes of Florida, Montreal, Carolina Hurricanes and Ducks.

Allen represented Canada once at the international level, playing in the 1999 World Junior Championship. He would score the game-tying goal in the gold-medal game against Russia, sending the game to overtime, ultimately ending in a loss. Allen was scheduled to be one of the leaders of the 2000 World Championship team, however he was forced to miss the tournament due to injury.
