Christopher John Kibermanis (born March 24, 1976 in Calgary, Alberta)[1] is a Canadian former ice hockey player.

Prior to his short political career he was drafted by the Winnipeg Jets in 1994. He played three seasons in the Western Hockey League with the Red Deer Rebels.[1][2]

After his retirement from hockey, Kibermanis ran as an Alberta Liberal Party candidate during the 2004 Alberta provincial election, in the electoral district of Edmonton Castle Downs. On election night, he was initially declared elected by a margin of just five votes over incumbent Progressive Conservative Thomas Lukaszuk.[3] Following a judicial recount, however, Lukaszuk was deemed to have won by three votes.

Kibermanis ran again in the 2008 election, but was again defeated by Lukaszuk, this time by 2,200 votes.
