Brett Callighen (born May 15, 1953 in Toronto, Ontario) is a Canadian retired professional ice hockey forward who played 160 games in the National Hockey League (NHL) and 213 games in the World Hockey Association (WHA). He played for the New England Whalers and Edmonton Oilers. He was Wayne Gretzky's first regular left winger.
Callighen's career was cut short after his left eye was clipped by Brad McCrimmon's stick on 24 February 1980, during the team's first NHL season, missing the remainder of that season. Callighen had repeated surgeries, but was declared legally blind in that eye. He played in only portions of the Oilers' 1980–81 and 1981–82 seasons, followed by a few games over the next four years with European teams HC Lugano and Vienna EV and AHL team Adirondack Red Wings.
