Stéphane Brochu (born August 15, 1967 in Sherbrooke, Quebec) is a Canadian former ice hockey defenceman.

Brochu was drafted 175th overall by the New York Rangers in the 1985 NHL Entry Draft from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League's Quebec Remparts. He played three further seasons in the league for the Saint-Jean Castors before turning pro in the International Hockey League for the Colorado Rangers who later became the Denver Rangers. During the 1988-89 season, Brochu was called up for one game for the New York Rangers. This turned out to be Brochu's only NHL game. After five games with the Flint Spirits, Brochu spent two seasons with the Fort Wayne Komets before returning to Flint in 1991 to suit up for the Flint Bulldogs of the Colonial Hockey League. He also played 3 games for the IHL's Kansas City Blades. The Bulldogs relocated to Utica, New York to become the Utica Bulldogs, but Brochu remained in Flint and signed with the Flint Generals where he spent six seasons. During the six seasons, he had spells in the IHL for the Detroit Vipers, Chicago Wolves and the Fort Wayne Koments as well as the American Hockey League's Adirondack Red Wings. After spending the 1999-00 season with the Adirondack IceHawks, Brochu returned to the Generals for one more season before retiring.
