Allan Loney (born 1885) 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.

Loney claimed self-defence. The charges were reduced to manslaughter, and he was subsequently acquitted.[1]
