Glen Edwin Wesley (born October 2, 1968) is a retired Canadian ice hockey defenceman who played 10 seasons for the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League. He also played for the Boston Bruins, Hartford Whalers and Toronto Maple Leafs. He is currently the Hurricanes' director of development for defensemen.

Wesley was drafted 3rd overall by the Boston Bruins in the 1987 NHL Entry Draft from the Portland Winter Hawks, appearing in 202 regular season games over 3+ seasons, scoring 49 goals and 175 assists for 224 points.

He re-signed with the Hurricanes at the end of the season, and has been with the club since the 2003–2004 season.
