Benoît St-Amand (born 19 April 1978) is a Canadian ice sledge hockey player. He had a bone cancer in his right leg when he was 15 (1993), and his leg was amputated above the knee in 1995.

Born in Montreal, Quebec, St-Amand, began to play ice sledge hockey immediately after the 2002 Winter Paralympics, where he saw the Canadian national team, and made his debut for the national team just two years later (in 2004) - first as a forward, then as a goalie.
