Dean McAmmond (born June 15, 1973, in Grande Cache, Alberta) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player, currently a member of the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League. He plays centre and left wing.

McAmmond played four seasons in the Western Hockey League with the Prince Albert Raiders and the Swift Current Broncos. During the 1992–93 WHL playoffs, he scored a league high 16 goals in 17 playoff games to help lead the Swift Current Broncos to the league championship. He would net 431 total points while with the Raiders. In 1993, McAmmond captured a gold medal as a member of Team Canada at the IIHF World Junior Championships in Sweden.

A first-round selection by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft (22nd overall), McAmmond made his NHL debut with the Blackhawks during the 1991–92 season. On February 24, 1993, Chicago traded McAmmond, along with Igor Kravchuk, to the Edmonton Oilers for Joe Murphy. McAmmond spent the better part of six seasons in the Oilers organization from 1993 to 1998, including two stints with Edmonton's AHL affiliate Cape Breton Oilers. During his time in Edmonton, McAmmond also represented his native Canada at the 1996 World Championships in Austria, winning a silver medal. After dressing in over 300 games with the Oilers, his longest tenure with any NHL club, Edmonton sent the Alberta native back to Chicago with Jonas Elofsson and Boris Mironov on March 20, 1999 to the Blackhawks for Ethan Moreau, Chad Kilger, Daniel Cleary and Christian Laflamme. McAmmond once again represented Canada during the 2000 World Championships in Russia.
