Mitja Robar (born January 4, 1983) is a Slovenian ice hockey player, currently playing with Krefeld Pinguine of the German DEL.

Robar has spent the majority of his career in Slovenia, playing for HDK Maribor, HK Slavija Ljubljana and HDD Olimpija Ljubljana of the Slovenian Championship league. In 2011 he was under a try-out contract with the Växjö Lakers Hockey of the Elitserien (SEL) until October 15, 2011.[1] However, he was subsequently loaned to IK Oskarshamn of the HockeyAllsvenskan (Swe-1) after failing to make the Lakers' startup lines.[2] After being denied an extended contract, Robar moved to Finland to sign a one-year contract (with an optional one-year extension) with Lukko of the SM-liiga.[3]

He participated at several IIHF World Championships as a member of the Slovenia men's national ice hockey team.[4]
