Jeff Lank (born March 1, 1975 in Indian Head, Saskatchewan) is a retired professional ice hockey defenceman. He played 2 NHL games with the Philadelphia Flyers during the 1999–2000 season.

He played Junior "B" for the Columbia Valley Rockies in 1990-91 and then major junior for the Prince Albert Raiders from 1991 to 1995. Originally chosen 113th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft, he was unable to come to terms with the club and re-rentered the draft. Lank signed with the Philadelphia Flyers after they selected him 230th overall in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft.

Lank turned pro with the Hershey Bears in 1995-96 and started as a steady, if unspectacular defenceman. Despite his big size (6'3") he rarely used his body to hit and was mostly a clean, smart player. The Flyers tried to get him to be rougher but to little avail.

Except for two games for the Flyers in 1999-2000, Lank played his entire pro career in the American Hockey League, playing for the Philadelphia Phantoms from 1996 to 2000. He retired in 2000.
