Drew Paris (born May 12, 1988) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman. He is currently playing for the Cardiff Devils in the UK's Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL).

Prior to turning professional with the Rochester Americans, Paris played major junior hockey in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.[1]

After splitting the 2011-12 season, between the Chicago Express of the ECHL and the Toronto Marlies of the AHL, Paris signed a one-year contract with European team, Düsseldorfer EG, of the DEL.[2]

On June 21, 2016, after a successful 2015–16 season in Sweden with Tingsryds AIF of the second tier HockeyAllsvenskan, Paris opted to remain in Sweden, signing with newly demoted Allsvenskan club, Modo Hockey on a one-year deal.[3]

After a spell with Dornbirner EC, Paris moved to the UK to sign for EIHL side Cardiff Devils in June 2017.[4]
