Dave Elenbaas (born February 20, 1952 in Chatham, Ontario) is a retired Canadian goaltender who was a star with Cornell University and the Nova Scotia Voyageurs.

He played Junior "B" in North York and then joined Cornell in 1969. He was an All-Ivy League all-star and ECAC all-star in his final year in 1972-73.

The Montreal Canadiens chose him 62nd overall in the 1972 NHL Amateur Draft. Given that fellow Cornell alumnus Ken Dryden was Montreal's regular goalie at the time, Elenbaas had little chance of cracking the Canadiens' lineup. He was assigned to the Voyageurs, where he shared in the Harry "Hap" Holmes Memorial Award for four straight years from 1973-74 through 1976-77.

He then moved to the Dallas Black Hawks in 1977-78 and retired to finish off his education.
