Chris Minard (born November 18, 1981 in Owen Sound, Ontario) is a Canadian ice hockey player for the Springfield Falcons in the American Hockey League (AHL). Minard began his professional career in 2002 with the Pensacola Ice Pilots of the ECHL.

During the 2004–05 season he played with the Alaska Aces, and made his AHL debut, playing one game with the Milwaukee Admirals. During the NHL lockout, Minard played on a line with Scott Gomez, who had returned to his hometown of Anchorage to play for the season. During the season, Minard posted career highs in goals scored. This led to Gomez influencing New Jersey Devils management to give Minard a training camp slot, where he would earn a spot for the 2005–06 AHL season with the Albany River Rats, and the 2006–07 season with the Lowell Devils.

Minard was signed by the Penguins on July 12, 2007. He made his NHL debut on January 21, 2008 against the Washington Capitals. On February 26, Minard recorded his first NHL point, with an assist against the New York Islanders. Minard scored his first NHL goal on March 12, 2008, beating Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres.

His brother, Mike Minard also played briefly in the NHL, as a goaltender for the Edmonton Oilers.

On July 13, 2009 he signed a deal with the Edmonton Oilers, one month after the Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup
