Jett Woo (born July 27, 2000) is a Canadian junior ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for the Calgary Hitmen of the Western Hockey League (WHL), and is a prospect of the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League (NHL).[1] On June 23, 2018, he was selected 37th overall in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. He is of Chinese and German descent.[1]

During the 2018–19 season, his fourth season with the Moose Jaw Warriors, Woo was signed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Vancouver Canucks on March 17, 2019.[2]

At the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft on May 2, 2019, Woo was traded from Moose Jaw to the Calgary Hitmen in exchange for defenceman Vladislav Yeryomenko, forward Ryder Korczak, the 11th overall selection in the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft, and a second-round pick in 2021.[3]
