Gregory Westlake (born 12 June 1986) is a Canadian ice sledge hockey player. Both his legs were amputated when he was 18 months old; because of a congenital defect he had no tibia in one leg, and no fibula in the other. At age six he appeared in a public service announcement for The War Amps non-profit organization on playing safe, and is still close to the organization that provides support and services to all Canadian amputees.
He began to play ice sledge hockey in 2001 at age 15, for the Mississauga Cruisers, then made his debut for the Canadian national team in 2003, eventually becoming captain of the team. He has won medals at the 2006 Winter Paralympics and 2014 Winter Paralympics.
