Graeme Walton (born 14 June 1981 in Belfast, Northern Ireland) is a retired British professional ice hockey defenceman who last played for the Belfast Giants of the Elite Ice Hockey League.[1]

Walton joined his hometown team in 2003 where he has since become one of the Giants' most consistent players. A stay-at-home defenceman, Walton trained locally at the Dundonald Ice Bowl where he impressed Giants scouts and was eventually given a contract. He was ranked 5th in the all-time list of games for the Giants, with 277 as of the end of the 2007-08 season.

Walton also plays internationally for the Great Britain national ice hockey team alongside current Giants teammate Stevie Lyle and former Giant Dave Phillips.
