Tyson Barrie (born July 26, 1991) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman playing with the Colorado Avalanche organization of the National Hockey League (NHL). Barrie previously captained the Kelowna Rockets of the Western Hockey League.
Barrie is the son of former NHLer and Tampa Bay Lightning former co-owner Len Barrie. He is from Langford, British Columbia, Canada located on Vancouver Island just north of Victoria, British Columbia.
After initially playing in the Midget AAA league with the Juan de Fuca Grizzlies, Barrie began his major junior career in the Western Hockey League (WHL) with the Kelowna Rockets at the tail end of the 2006–07 season.
Barrie made his professional debut in the 2011–12 season, assigned to the Avalanche's American Hockey League affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters. As a defenceman Tyson impressively led the Monsters in scoring at the midpoint of the campaign and was selected in the AHL All-Star Game, scoring a goal, helping the Western Conference to victory. Shortly after on February 4, 2012, he received his first NHL recall by the Avalanche.
During the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs, Barrie got hit knee-on-knee by Minnesota Wild player Matt Cooke and did not return to the game. Avalanche Coach Patrick Roy later announced he would miss at least 4-6 weeks with a torn MCL.

He was again included to take part in Canada's 2011 National Junior Team selection camp and was among the final names to make the team. Barrie was among the teams' best during the Tournament as Canada had to settle for Silver in a 5-3 collapse against Russia in the final.
