Curtis Hamilton (born December 4, 1991) is an American-born Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is currently with HC Sparta Praha of the Czech Extraliga (Czech). Hamilton was selected by the Edmonton Oilers in the 2nd round (48th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
Hamilton was born in Tacoma, Washington, but grew up in Kelowna, British Columbia when his father, Bruce owned the Tacoma Rockets (which relocated to Kelowna in 1995). Prior to turning professional, he played major junior hockey in the Western Hockey League (WHL) with the Saskatoon Blades.
On April 18, 2011 the Edmonton Oilers signed Hamilton to a three-year entry level contract. In his fourth season within the Oilers organization in 2014–15, Hamilton was recalled from the Oklahoma City Barons and made his NHL debut, going scoreless in his solitary game with the Oilers.
As a free agent over the summer, Hamilton was unable to attract NHL interest and on September 30, 2015, he signed his first European contract in agreeing to a one-year deal with Czech club, HC Sparta Prague of the Czech Extraliga.
