Kristopher "Kris" Beech (born February 5, 1981 in Salmon Arm, British Columbia) is a Canadian ice hockey center, currently playing for HV71 in the Swedish elite league Elitserien.

Beech was drafted 7th overall in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft by the Washington Capitals. At the time he was playing for the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL. Beech was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins in July 2001 with Michal Sivek, Ross Lupaschuk and future considerations for Jaromir Jagr and Frantisek Kucera.

Beech appeared in 79 games for the Penguins recording 10 goals and 15 assists for 25 points. Disappointed with his development, the Penguins traded Beech on September 9, 2005 to the Nashville Predators for a conditional draft pick. Beech returned to the Capitals organization on March 9, 2006, having been traded, along with a first-round pick, for defenseman Brendan Witt. He was sent down to the Hershey Bears to join their AHL playoff campaign and helped them to Calder Cup victory against the Milwaukee Admirals.
