In ice hockey, a stay-at-home defenceman is one who plays a very defensive-minded game. The player is generally more concerned with guarding his team's end of the ice and preventing the opposing players from getting shots on his goal. The stay-at-home defenceman is less concerned about scoring goals and playing an offensive minded hockey game. These players usually play with a more physical style and are often used to neutralize the opposing team's offensive players.

These defencemen normally are put in penalty kill situations, and are usually partnered with offensive-minded defencemen. Typically, effective stay-at-home defensemen have high plus/minus ratings.
