Kevin Weekes (born April 4, 1975) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender currently playing for the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League (NHL). Weekes is of Bajan descent.

Kevin's career started with the Owen Sound Platers of the Ontario Hockey League. He also had a brief stint with the Ottawa 67's.

Chosen 41st overall by the Florida Panthers in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft, he joined the team for the 1997–98 season, going 0–5–1 in 11 appearances for the Panthers. The following summer he was traded to the Vancouver Canucks in a trade for Pavel Bure and compiled a 6–15–5 record in 31 appearances over a season and a half before being traded to the New York Islanders halfway through the 1999–2000 season. At the conclusion of that season he was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning, where he played until late in the 2001–02 season when he was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes.
