Adam Lee Burt (born January 15, 1969) is a retired professional ice hockey defenseman. He was drafted in the second round, 39th overall, by the Hartford Whalers in the 1987 NHL Entry Draft.

Burt played four seasons for the Ontario Hockey League's North Bay Centennials before joining the Whaler organization. He made his NHL debut for Hartford in the 1988–89 season, and he remained with the franchise through its transformation into the Carolina Hurricanes in 1997. Burt parted ways with the Hurricanes on March 6, 1999, when he was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Andrei Kovalenko. Burt played his final NHL season with the Atlanta Thrashers in 2000–01.

In his NHL career, Burt played in 737 games. He recorded 37 goals and 115 assists. He also appeared in 21 Stanley Cup playoff games, tallying one assist.

Burt is a noted born-again Christian. He currently serves on the pastoral staff of Morning Star New York in Manhattan, New York. When asked in an interview how he reconciled his beliefs with his oft-chippy demeanor on the ice, he responded with a Biblical quote: "Whatever you do, do it hardily to the Lord." He now resides in New Jersey with his wife and two children.
