Olivier Fortier (born May 2, 1989) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently playing for the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League (AHL). He was selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the 3rd round (65th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
During the 2010–11 AHL season, his first full professional year, Fortier showed flashes of his ability to skate with the top guys and, with 9 goals and 11 assists while playing with the Hamilton Bulldogs, demonstrated that he could hold his own offensively.
After the completion of his entry-level contract, Fortier was unable to garner an offer from the Canadiens. He was signed to a one-year AHL contract to remain with the Bulldogs on September 18, 2012. Prior to the 2012–13 season, Fortier was then re-assigned by the Bulldogs to the Orlando Solar Bears of the ECHL.
