Charles William "Charlie" Conacher (b. December 20, 1909 in Toronto, Ontario - December 30, 1967) was a Canadian professional ice hockey forward who played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Americans, and Detroit Red Wings in the National Hockey League.

Anchoring the Kid Line with Harvey "Busher" Jackson and Joe Primeau, Charlie was a member of the Maple Leafs teams of the 1930s that won one Stanley Cup and finished runner-up six times. An early power forward, Conacher was nicknamed "The Big Bomber," for his size, powerful shot and goal scoring. He led the NHL five times in goals, and twice led in overall scoring.

Charlie was a brother of Hall of Famers Lionel Conacher and Roy Conacher. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1961 and, later, to Canada's Sports Hall of Fame in 1975. In 1998, he was ranked number 36 on the List of 100 greatest hockey players by The Hockey News.

Charlie Conacher died in 1967 and was buried in the Mount Pleasant Cemetery of Toronto.
