Chad Painchaud (born 27 May 1986 in Mississauga, Ontario) is a Canadian professional ice hockey right winger who is currently playing for the South Carolina Stingrays of the ECHL. He was a 4th round pick (106th overall) for the Atlanta Thrashers in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
Between the 2004 and 2006 seasons, Painchaud played in the Ontario Hockey League with the Mississauga IceDogs and Sarnia Sting. He was selected by the Atlanta Thrashers in the 4th round (106th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
