William Charles "Red" Hay (born December 8, 1935 in Lumsden, Saskatchewan) is a retired Canadian ice hockey centre who played eight seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Chicago Black Hawks. He is the son of Hockey Hall of Fame member Charles Hay.
Hay started his junior career with the Regina Pats in the Western Canadian Junior Hockey League in 1952-53. He would then move on to play for the Saskatchewan Huskies in 1953-54 before returning to the Pats in 1954-55. Hay and the Pats would make it all the way to the Memorial Cup that year where they would lose in 5 games to the Toronto Marlboros.
In 1955-56, Hay moved to Colorado to play with the Colorado College Tigers. He received many awards during his stay in Colorado which saw him being named to the WCHA First All-Star Team twice, the NCAA First All-Star Team twice and a berth to the NCAA Championship All-Tournament Team in 1956-57.
In 1958-59, Hay started his pro career with the Calgary Stampeders. In 53 games he recorded 24 goals and 54 points. In 1959-60, Hay made his first National Hockey League appearance with the Chicago Black Hawks. In his rookie season he put up a total of 55 points and was awarded the Calder Memorial Trophy and a spot on the 1960 NHL All-Star Game roster. In 1960-61, Hay and the Black Hawks made a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals. Paired on a line with Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita, the trio helped the Black Hawks claim their first Stanley Cup since 1937-38. Hay would play 6 more seasons, all with the Black Hawks, before retiring.
