Clinton Howard "The Professor" Albright (February 28, 1926 – December 30, 1999) was a centre in the NHL for the New York Rangers. Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, he played 59 games for the Rangers in the 1948–49 season, wearing the number fifteen on his jersey.[1] He was one of few players to wear glasses on the ice.[2]

Albright played junior hockey for the Winnipeg Monarchs, and twice went to the Memorial Cup with them, winning the tournament in 1946.[3] At the University of Manitoba to study mechanical engineering, Albright played for the university team, and also played for the Allan Cup with the Winnipeg Flyers.[2] After his single season with the Rangers, Albright returned to school to complete his degree,[1] and was out of hockey all together by 1954.[3]
