Benny Grant (July 14, 1908 – July 30, 1991) was a professional ice hockey goaltender who played 52 games in the National Hockey League. Born in Owen Sound, Ontario, he played with the New York Americans, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Boston Bruins.

Grant played junior hockey with the Owen Sound Greys from 1924 to 1927. He turned pro with the London Panthers in 1927-28 and then was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs the following season. The Leafs used him as a rarely-used backup and also loaned him out to several teams, including the New York Americans.

He ended up in the minor pros and played 5 seasons for the Springfield Indians and 2 seasons with the St. Paul Saints.

In 1942 with a shortage of players due to World War II, Grant was signed by the Toronto Maple Leafs as a wartime replacement. He played 20 games with the Leafs and 1 with the Boston Bruins in 1943-44. The game with the Bruins was on loan and was a 10-2 loss to his teamates from Toronto. Grant retired that year.

Grant played in a total of 52 NHL games in his career.
