Jiří Bubla[1] (born January 27, 1950) is a retired Czech ice hockey defenceman.

Bubla played his entire National Hockey League career with the Vancouver Canucks, beginning in 1982. He retired after the 1985–86 season. He is the father of Jiří Šlégr.

Following his retirement from hockey, he was arrested at the 1987 IIHF World Championship in Vienna and charged with involvement in a drug trafficking ring. Convicted of smuggling four kilograms of heroin, he served nearly four years in an Austrian jail.[2]
