Māris Jučers (born June 18, 1987) is a Latvian professional ice hockey goaltender who is currently playing for Dinamo Riga of the Kontinental Hockey League.

Between 2007 and 2011 Jučers played for the Latvian club Metalurgs Liepaja which participates in the Belarusian Extraleague. On July 19, 2011 it was announced that Māris has signed a 2 year two-way contract with Dinamo Riga.

In November 2010, whilst competing in the Continental Cup in Rouen, France, Jučers suffered a beating at the hands of the Coventry Blaze of the British Elite Ice Hockey League. The red goal light behind him was lit up so often that at one point Jučers actually thought he was in a disco.

He participated at the 2011 IIHF World Championship as a member of the Latvia men's national ice hockey team.
