Arthur Gordon Bruce (May 9, 1919 – July 15, 1997) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey forward who played 28 games in the National Hockey League for the Boston Bruins. He was born in Ottawa, Ontario.

During the 1940-41 Boston won the Stanley Cup. Bruce was called up from the minors to play 8 regular season games, and 2 playoffs games for the winning team. Bruce qualified to be engraved on the Stanley Cup, but for some reason Boston Bruins choose to leave his name off.

As a member of the Sudbury Wolves he helped Canada win the 1938 World Ice Hockey Championships by scoring 3 goals and 2 assist in 7 games.
