Robert Andrew Burns (April 4, 1905 – August 12, 1995) was a Canadian professional ice hockey left wing who played twenty games in the National Hockey League with the Chicago Black Hawks. Burns spent most of his career in the American Hockey Association (AHA).
Burns began his professional career in 1926 with Eddie Livingstone's Chicago Cardinals of the AHA. After the team was forced out of business by the NHL, the AHA assigned his rights to the Chicago Black Hawks. He played one game with the Hawks and the rest of the season for the Duluth Hornets. In 1928–29, he played in seven games for the Black Hawks. He was sent to the Minneapolis Millers the following season but would play in a further twelve games in the NHL for the Black Hawks, scoring his first and only NHL goal. He would play out the rest of his career in the AHA, retiring from pro hockey in 1939.
