Charles Thomas Lefley (born January 20, 1950 in Winnipeg, Manitoba) is a retired Canadian ice hockey forward.

Drafted by the Montreal Canadiens sixth overall in the 1970 NHL Amateur Draft, Lefley started his National Hockey League career with Montreal in 1971. He was traded on Nov. 28, 1974 to the St. Louis Blues for Don Awrey. In 1975-76 he set a Blues franchise record by scoring 43 goals, a record later broken by Wayne Babych. Lefley, whose older brother Bryan Lefley spent five seasons in the NHL, left the Blues in 1977-78, joining Jokerit Helsinki for one season scoring 12 goals and 11 assists in 24 games. He returned to the Blues in 1979-80, playing parts of two seasons before retiring after the 1981 season. He won two Stanley Cups with the 1971 and 1973 Montreal Canadiens.
