The Montana Magic were a short-lived ice hockey franchise, founded in 1983, that competed for one season in the now defunct Central Hockey League, based in North America.

As a minor league team, the Magic served as a National Hockey League affiliate whose parent teams were the St. Louis Blues and Edmonton Oilers.

After their first and only season in the CHL, in which they failed to make the playoffs, posting a 20–52–4 record, the league inevitably folded and the team consequently disbanded as well.

Notable players who played for the Magic included Reggie Leach, Blair MacDonald, Don Murdoch and Stan Weir.
