Robin Dale Bartel (born May 16, 1961) is a Canadian retired professional ice hockey defenceman who played in the National Hockey League during the mid-1980s. He appeared in 41 NHL games, recording an assist and 14 penalty minutes.

A stay-at-home defender, Bartel played at the University of Saskatchewan before joining the Canadian National Team for the 1983–84 season and representing Canada at the 1984 Winter Olympics. Never drafted, Bartel signed with the Calgary Flames and spent two seasons in their organization, appearing in a single NHL game for the Flames in 1985–86.

Released by the Flames, Bartel signed as a free agent with the Vancouver Canucks for the 1986–87 season and stuck with the team as a depth defender, appearing in 40 games and recording a single assist. However, he would lose his spot the following year and spend the entire season in the minors.

After another stint with the Canadian National Team and a year in Britain, Bartel retired in 1990. He played two games in the American Hockey League with the St. John's Maple Leafs during the 1993–94 AHL season.
