Joseph Conrad Etienne Dion (born August 11, 1918) is a professional hockey player who played for the Detroit Red Wings in the National Hockey League.

While playing for the Buffalo Bisons in 1949-50, Dion won the AHL's Harry (Hap) Holmes Memorial Award, given to goaltenders with the lowest goals-against average. He helped design the Asbestos Golf Course where a tournament in his name was held for many years and the Asbestos hockey arena now holds his name[1]
