Nicolas Blanchard (born May 31, 1987) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently playing on a try-out contract with the St. John's IceCaps of the American Hockey League (AHL). He was selected in the 6th round, 192nd overall, by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.
Blanchard was signed to a three-year entry level contract with the Hurricanes on March 4, 2007.
Although Blanchard played 9 games with the Hurricanes during the 2012-13 NHL Season, he spent the rest of his career with the organization playing for its AHL affiliate (initially the River Rats, then the Charlotte Checkers). After the 2013-14 season, Blanchard became an unrestricted free agent and did not re-sign with the team.
