Autry Raymond Erickson (January 25, 1938 – August 21, 2010) was a professional ice hockey player who played 226 games in the National Hockey League. He played with the Chicago Black Hawks, Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Oakland Seals. He won the Stanley Cup in 1967 with the Toronto Maple Leafs, playing no regular season games, and only three playoff games.

Aut Erickson wore number 11 when he joined the Boston Bruins in 1959-60. The lanky young rearguard, known as a steady, dependable blueliner, would play two full seasons in Boston, establishing his rock solid, robust and rugged minded defensive presence. Aut Erickson would later see duty as a member of the Chicago Black Hawks defence and play in the 1967 Stanley Cup winning finals while with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Erickson was an original member of the expansion Oakland Seals.

Erickson died in August 2010 after a long battle with cancer.[1]
