Allan Nelson Loney (May 3, 1885 – March 2, 1965) was an ice hockey player from the Ontario town of Maxville. He was the first hockey player to be charged with murder for the death of another player, after he clubbed Alcide Laurin to death during a game on February 24, 1905. He was the only son of Ephram Allen Loney and Jerusha Ann Adams of Maxville.
Loney claimed self-defence. The charges were reduced to manslaughter, and he was subsequently acquitted. He died on March 2, 1965 in Edmonton, Alberta, where he had worked as a Canadian National Railway employee.
