Craig Charron (November 15, 1967 – October 19, 2010) was a professional ice hockey center from North Easton, Massachusetts. He attended the University of Massachusetts Lowell, where he played for four seasons and served as captain of the 1989-1990 team, finishing his collegiate career as the second-leading scorer in the program's Division I history with 64 goals in 142 career games.
He was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1989 NHL Supplemental Draft; however, he never appeared in a game in the National Hockey League. He was a prolific player in the American Hockey League for many seasons, and he was the highest-scoring player on the 1995–96 Rochester Americans team which won the Calder Cup.
At the time of his death, he was the coach of the Spencerport Rangers High School Hockey team. During his first season as head coach Spencerport had made many strides but lost to the eventual state champions Webster-Thomas in the second round of sectionals.
Charron died at age 42 on October 19, 2010 after a battle with stomach cancer. He was inducted into the Legends of Lowell Hall of Fame by UMass Lowell and honored at the Tsongas Center at the University of Massachusetts Lowell on October 22, 2010. He was the nephew of 1980 U.S. Olympic goalie Jim Craig.
