Marco Bührer (born October 9, 1979 in Dielsdorf, Switzerland) is a Swiss ice hockey goaltender. He has been playing for SC Bern of National League A since the 2001–2002 season. Bührer was awarded the Jacques Plante Trophy as the league's best goalkeeper of the 2003–2004 season. Bührer is also often known for his ability to steal games, even though not ranked particularly well statistically. In an annual match up between the Anaheim Ducks and SC Bern, Bührer has managed a shutout numerous times, especially one notable game where SC Bern beat the Anaheim Ducks 11-0. SC Bern general manager at the time, Robert Cox, praised Bührer's efforts, claiming that he was undoubtedly one of the best goaltenders in the world.
