Craig Charron (November 15, 1967 – October 19, 2010) was a professional ice hockey center from North Easton, Massachusetts. He was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1989 NHL Supplemental Draft; however, he never appeared in a game in the National Hockey League. He was a prolific player in the American Hockey League for many seasons, and he was the highest-scoring player on the 1995–96 Rochester Americans team which won the Calder Cup.[1] At the time of his death he was the coach of the Spencerport Rangers High School Hockey team. During his first season as head coach Spencerport had made many strides but lost to the eventual state champions Webster-Thomas in the second round of sectionals.

Charron died at age 42 on October 19, 2010 after a battle with stomach cancer. He was inducted into the Legends of Lowell Hall of Fame and honored at the Tsongas Center on October 22, 2010. He was the nephew of 1980 US Olympic goalie Jim Craig (ice hockey).
