Dudley "Red" Garrett (July 24, 1924 – November 24, 1944) was a professional ice hockey defenceman who played 23 games for the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League in the 1942–43 season.

Dudley was born in Toronto, Ontario. He went to school at (now known as) Hodgson Senior Public school. Garrett originally was property of the Toronto Maple Leafs, however he was traded in 1942 along with Hank Goldup to the Rangers for future Hart Trophy recipient, Babe Pratt. Garrett was killed in action during World War II while serving on the corvette HMCS Shawinigan, during a convoy escort mission off the coast of Channel-Port aux Basques, Newfoundland in the Battle of the St. Lawrence. The American Hockey League presented a trophy in his honour in 1947, the Dudley "Red" Garrett Memorial Award, which is given to the best rookie in the AHL each season.[1]
