Kevin Colley (born January 4, 1979 in New Haven, Connecticut and raised in Collingwood, Ontario) is a retired American-born Canadian ice hockey right winger who played for the New York Islanders of the NHL, and currently is the head coach of the Arizona Sundogs of the CHL. Colley was signed as a free agent by the Islanders on June 11, 2004. Colley fractured his fifth cervical vertebra in a game against the Washington Capitals on January 31, 2006. As a result of the injuries sustained to his neck and at the behest of his doctors, Colley officially retired from professional ice hockey on February 24, 2006.[1] Colley's father, Tom, was a former NHL player.

On April 8, 2006, prior to their game against the Washington Capitals, the Islanders presented Colley with the Bob Nystrom Award, an award given to the Islander "who best exemplifies leadership, hustle and dedication" as voted on by the fans.[2]
