René Georges Drolet (born November 13, 1944) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey centre who played in two National Hockey League (NHL) games, one with the Philadelphia Flyers and the other with the Detroit Red Wings.
Drolet is most remembered for missing an empty net on a backhander in the third period in Buffalo in the final game of the 1971-72 season. It was his only game as a Flyer. When Gerry Meehan of the Sabres scored with four seconds left in the third period, it knocked the Flyers out of a playoff berth.
