Ryan Hillier (born January 25, 1988) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player who is currently playing Collegiate hockey for Saint Mary's University.

Whilst playing Junior with the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, he was selected by the New York Rangers in the 3rd round (84th overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

On July 9, 2010, the Rangers traded Hillier along with Aaron Voros to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Steve Eminger.[1]

After the final year of his entry-level contract in the 2010–11 season with the Ducks secondary affiliate, the Elmira Jackals of the ECHL, Hillier was not tendered a new contract by the Ducks and released as a free agent. With no significant offers, Hillier decided to halt his professional career and pursue an education with Saint Mary's University. Hillier then joined the Huskies in the 2012–13 season after gaining his eligibility through sitting for the duration of the previous season.[2]
