Brent Gretzky (born February 20, 1972, in Brantford, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian ice hockey player, and the brother of Wayne and Keith Gretzky. He briefly played in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Tampa Bay Lightning. With 2,861 points between them, Brent and Wayne hold the NHL record for most points scored by a pair of brothers — 2,857 by Wayne, four by Brent.

Taught the game by his father Walter Gretzky was drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft, but did not find the same success as his brother. During Gretzky's 13-game stint with Tampa Bay, he played once against Wayne: "We must have faced off 15 times and I won one. I remember chasing him behind the net. I knew what he was going to do and I still found myself looking for my jock. The hardest part was after the game, going and watching ESPN. It was older Gretzky shows young Gretzky how to play hockey."

Gretzky is a career minor leaguer, floating between the International Hockey League, the American Hockey League, and the United Hockey League. He played for Graz EC Austria in 1997-98. On June 6, 2006, the Elmira Jackals announced they had acquired his rights from the Motor City Mechanics.

On January 18, 2008, Gretzky made his debut playing in Major League Hockey with his hometown Brantford Blast team. On April 19, he won the Allan Cup with the Blast.
