Lane MacDonald (born March 3, 1966 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, United States) is a retired ice hockey player. Born in Tulsa as the son of former NHL player Lowell MacDonald, Lane was a prep star at the University School of Milwaukee, and grew up in Pittsburgh, PA.

Drafted 59th overall by the Calgary Flames in the 1985 NHL Entry Draft, MacDonald chose to attend Harvard University, where he graduated with four school scoring records (including career goals), and ranking in the top five in 11 different statistical categories. He was twice named a first-team All-American. MacDonald took a year off from Harvard in 1987-88 to play for the United States' 1988 Winter Olympics team in Calgary.

MacDonald returned to Harvard as team captain to win the 1989 Hobey Baker Award, given to the top collegiate ice hockey player in the country, and leading the Crimson to the NCAA Championship. After college he played for HC Lugano is the Swiss League before recurring migraine headaches forced him to retire.

He was an assistant coach of Harvard in 1990-91.

He was inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in 2005.
