Brent Sopel (born January 7, 1977 in Calgary, Alberta) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Atlanta Thrashers of the National Hockey League (NHL). Despite being born in Calgary, Sopel grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in the city's Silverwood Heights neighborhood.

On April 3, 1996, just under a year after being drafted, Sopel signed his first professional contract with his draft team, the Vancouver Canucks. Sopel scored his first NHL goal on April 10, 1999 against the Edmonton Oilers' Tommy Salo.

Sopel was traded back to the Canucks during their 2006–07 season, on February 1, 2007, the NHL trade deadline. He missed the first game of the 2007 Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Dallas Stars after he injured his back picking a cracker up off the floor. The Canucks beat the Stars in quadruple overtime, in the sixth longest game in NHL history.
