Tyler John Bouck (born January 13, 1980) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey centre who played in the National Hockey League (NHL) with the Dallas Stars, Phoenix Coyotes and the Vancouver Canucks. He spent the last five seasons of his career in Germany with ERC Ingolstadt of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL).
Bouck was a second-round draft pick (57th overall) by the Dallas Stars in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft after three years with the Prince George Cougars of the Western Hockey League. After another two seasons with the Cougars and a brief spell with the AHL's Utah Grizzlies, Bouck finally made his debut for Dallas during the 2000–01 NHL season, playing 48 regular-season games that season, scoring 7 points (2 goals and 5 assists).
On June 23, 2001, Bouck was traded from the Stars to the Phoenix Coyotes for Jyrki Lumme. Bouck only played seven games for Phoenix and played mostly for the Springfield Falcons of the AHL. Bouck's spell with the Coyotes lasted just six months as he was traded on December 28, 2001, along with Todd Warriner and Trevor Letowski to the Vancouver Canucks for Drake Berehowsky and Denis Pederson. Bouck began his Canucks career once again in the AHL with the Manitoba Moose until he was called up briefly to the Canucks roster in the 2003–04 NHL season, playing 18 regular-season games and scoring a goal and two assists for three points.
During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Bouck was one of many NHL players who played in European Leagues, playing for TPS in Finland's SM-liiga. He returned to the Canucks the following season playing mostly with the Moose.
Without a club, Bouck was invited to the Anaheim Ducks training camp on September 10, 2007. After failing to catch on with the Ducks, Bouck was made captain of their affiliate, the Portland Pirates, for the 2007–08 season.
