Guy Larose (born August 31, 1967) is a Canadian retired professional ice hockey player. He is the son of former NHL/WHA player Claude Larose.[1]

Larose was drafted 224th overall by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1985 NHL Entry Draft as a 17-year-old, but never signed a contract with the Sabres. Instead he signed with the Winnipeg Jets in 1987, but spent most of the his tenure in the American Hockey League for the Moncton Hawks, and managed to play just ten games for the Jets. On January 22, 1991, he was traded to the New York Rangers for Rudy Poeschek, but never played for them and spent his entire tenure with the AHL's Binghamton Rangers where he scored five goals in his very first game with Binghamton. He was traded again on December 26, 1991, to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Mike Stevens, and played the most games in the NHL for the team, but was unable to maintain a permanent role in the team, and again bounced around the leagues. On January 1, 1994, Larose was claimed off waivers by the Calgary Flames and played seven games for them. He signed with the Boston Bruins as a free agent, but only managed to play four playoff games, as the Bruins lost four games to one to the New Jersey Devils in the first round.

Larose spent the next few seasons in the International Hockey League, playing for the Detroit Vipers, Las Vegas Thunder and the Houston Aeros, before spending a season in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga in Germany for the Revier Löwen. He returned to the IHL and spent four seasons with the Chicago Wolves and won the Turner Cup in 2000. He also won the Calder Cup in 2002 with the Chicago Wolves (AHL). He then retired in 2002 after splitting that year with the Wolves and the ECHL's Augusta Lynx. Guy is in the hall of fame.
