Jamie Allison (born May 13, 1975) is a former Canadian ice hockey player, having played his final year in the NHL split between the Nashville Predators and the Florida Panthers during the 2005-2006 season. Drafted 44th overall by the Calgary Flames in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft, Allison struggled to hold a full-time role during his time in Calgary, splitting his time between the Flames and their minor-league affiliate throughout the first three seasons with the club. In the 1997-98 season, he played a total of 43 games, registering career highs in assists (8) and points (11). Despite his efforts, he was traded the following season after appearing in just five games in the American Hockey League.

Allison played in three seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks, and while he never amassed more than four points in one season with the team, he added some consistency to the team’s blue line. In the 2000 Expansion Draft, Allison was one of five defensemen that the team protected, along with the likes of Bryan McCabe and Anders Eriksson. He returned to Calgary the following season, appearing in 37 games before being traded by the team for a second time, ironically to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Allison spent the next season in Columbus before moving on to the Predators, signing a multi-year deal. He went on to play in the Major League Hockey for the Cambridge Hornets in the 2004 lock-out year, returning back to Nashville for the following season. He split his final year in the NHL between Nashville and Florida, combining for one assist in 27 games. While he signed with the Ottawa Senators for the 2006-07 season, he was relegated to their minor-league affiliate Binghamton Senators for the entirety of the year. He retired at the conclusion of that season after finishing with two goals and five assists in 47 games.
