Milan Hejduk (Czech pronunciation:   ( listen); born February 14, 1976) is a Czech professional ice hockey player and alternate captain for the Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League (NHL).

The 6-foot (1.83 m) tall, 190-pound (86 kg) Hejduk was drafted 87th overall by the Quebec Nordiques in the 4th round of the 1994 NHL Entry Draft, after a year with HC Pardubice in the Czech Extraliga, after he won the Czech Rookie of the Year with 11 goals in 32 games. Hedjuk would remain with Pardubice until 1998, scoring 14, 13, 27, and 26 goals in his next four seasons before transferring to the NHL after the 1997-98 season.

He won the Maurice 'Rocket' Richard Trophy as the NHL's top goalscorer when he scored 50 goals for the Avalanche in the 2002–03 season, narrowly beating Markus Näslund of the Vancouver Canucks, who had been leading for most of the season. Hejduk scored a goal against the Calgary Flames in a 3–0 win for the Avalanche on March 12, 2006, putting him equal with Peter Forsberg in sixth place on the all-time Avalanche franchise goalscoring list with 216 goals. He won a Stanley Cup in 2001 with the Colorado Avalanche.
