Ryan Whitney (born February 19, 1983 in Scituate, Massachusetts), is an American professional ice hockey defenseman playing for the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League.

Whitney enrolled at Thayer Academy, a college-prep school in Braintree, Massachusetts in 1998, and almost immediately logged significant playing time. Head coach Jack Foley often paired Whitney, a freshman, with senior, and future Penguins teammate, Brooks Orpik.

Whitney's size and skill drew the attention of the U.S. national team's development program. After initially resisting the programs invitations, he left Thayer for the Michigan-based program in Ann Arbor for his senior year of high school.
