Byron Froese (born March 12, 1991) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing for the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League (AHL). Froese was selected by the Chicago Blackhawks in the fourth round (119th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

On May 31, 2011, the Chicago Blackhawks of the NHL signed Froese to a three-year entry level contract.[1] He split the majority of his contract between affiliates, the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League and the Toledo Walleye of the ECHL.

In the final year of his entry level deal with the Blackhawks in the 2013–14 season, he was reassigned from the IceHogs to the Cincinnati Cyclones, where he largely contributed to their Kelly Cup final appearance with 25 points in 23 games. As a free agent from the Blackhawks, Froese opted to remain with the Cyclones, signing a one-year deal on August 14, 2014.[2]

Froese was loaned by the Cyclones to the San Antonio Rampage to begin the 2014–15 season. After he was returned to Cincinnati, he was later loaned to the Toronto Marlies. In a successful stint with the Marlies, Froese was signed for the remainder of the season by the Marlies on January 7, 2015.[3]
