Robert Joseph Champoux (born December 2, 1942), is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender. He made his National Hockey League (NHL) debut with the Detroit Red Wings on March 29, 1964 when he replaced an injured Terry Sawchuk in a 5–4 victory at Chicago Stadium that evened the semifinal series against the Blackhawks at one game apiece. After Sawchuk returned to play all the remaining matches in the Red Wings' Stanley Cup playoff run, Champoux didn't play in another NHL contest until nine years later when he registered a 2–11–3 record with the California Golden Seals, the worst team in the league during the 1973–74 season.

He spent the remainder of his professional hockey career in the minor leagues. Champoux retired in 1977.

He played junior hockey for the Montreal Junior Canadiens and the Metropolitan Montreal Junior League's St. Jerome Alouettes and Palestre Nationale.
