Korey Dropkin (born June 11, 1995 in Boston, Massachusetts) is an American curler originally from Southborough, Massachusetts.

As a junior curler, Dropkin won three United States Junior Curling Championships, playing third for brother[1] Stephen in 2012 and skipping in 2013 and 2016. As such, Dropkin played for the United States at the World Junior Curling Championships, finishing 5th at the 2012 World Junior Curling Championships and 7th at the 2013 World Junior Curling Championships.

Dropkin was a member of the U.S. team at the 2012 Winter Youth Olympics, skipping a team that included Sarah Anderson, Thomas Howell and Taylor Anderson. The team finished 5th at the event; after going undefeated in the round robin, they were eliminated in the quarter final against Italy. Dropkin did not go away from the event empty handed, as he picked up a bronze medal at the mixed doubles event with teammate Marina Verenich of Russia.

Dropkin also represented the United States at the 2013 Winter Universiade, playing lead for the Chris Plys rink. That team finished in 5th place.

On the World Curling Tour, Dropkin has been a regular at events held in the U.S., playing in his first event at the 2010 Laphroaig Scotch Open at the age of 15. Dropkin won his first Tour event by winning the 2014 Twin Cities Open.
