Steven Goertzen (born May 26, 1984 in Stony Plain, Alberta) is a Canadian-born ice hockey winger for the National Hockey League's Carolina Hurricanes. He has also played professionally with the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets and Phoenix Coyotes, the American Hockey League's Syracuse Crunch and the ECHL's Dayton Bombers.

Goertzen started his junior hockey career with the tier II St. Albert Saints of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, but soon caught on with the Western Hockey League's Seattle Thunderbirds. After his first season with Seattle, Goertzen was selected 225th overall in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets, and after three seasons and 81 points with the Thunderbirds, Goertzen moved to the professional ranks.

So far, Goertzen's career has been marked by low point totals, with his best professional season being in 2004–05 when he spread twelve points out between the AHL and ECHL. However, in the 2005–06 NHL season, Goertzen made his NHL debut with Columbus, and in thirty-nine games failed to record a point before being returned to the American Hockey League.

He failed to score a point in his first 48 career games. In his 49th career game, as a member of the Phoenix Coyotes, he scored his first two career points, both assists, in a 6-3 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

On July 8, 2009 he signed as an unrestricted free agent with the Carolina Hurricanes.
