Radek Dvořák (born March 9, 1977 in Tábor, Czechoslovakia) is a Czech professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Dvořák was drafted in the first round of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, tenth overall, by the Florida Panthers. He has played for the Panthers, New York Rangers, and Edmonton Oilers. He was traded to the San Jose Sharks but was traded by the Sharks to the Rangers the very same day.

Dvořák played in the NHL the very next season, and spent four and a half seasons playing for Florida, before being involved in a three-way trade for Mike Vernon. Dvořák ended up on the New York Rangers, and the following season (2000–01), he scored a career-high 30 goals and 67 points playing on a line with fellow Czechs Petr Nedvěd and Jan Hlaváč. Dvořák was traded to the Edmonton Oilers at the 2002–03 NHL trade deadline, along with Cory Cross, for Anson Carter and Aleš Píša. During the playoffs of the 2002–03 NHL season, Dvořák made a highlight reel play in which he skated from end to end scoring a game-winning goal.
