Maxim Birbraer (Hebrew: מקס בירבראייר‎; born December 15, 1980) is a Kazakhstan born Israeli professional ice hockey forward who is currently playing for the Telford Tigers in the English Premier Ice Hockey League (EPIHL). Birbraer is Jewish.[1] and has played for the Israel national ice hockey team.

He was the only Israeli national ever to be drafted by a NHL team when he was drafted 67th overall in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft by the New Jersey Devils. Despite this, he never played in the NHL, instead spending three seasons with their American Hockey League affiliate, the Albany River Rats. In 2006, Birbraer signed with the Cardiff Devils of the Elite Ice Hockey League. In 2008, he signed for the Heilbronn Falcons in Germany's 2nd Bundesliga
