Scott Scissons (born October 29, 1971, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) is a former National Hockey League centre. He was drafted in the first round, sixth overall, by the New York Islanders in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. While a high percentage of players selected in the first round of that draft went on to productive NHL careers, Scissons was one of the few busts.

Scissons was chosen after five players, who all went on to have long National Hockey League careers: Owen Nolan, Petr Nedved, Keith Primeau, Mike Ricci, and Jaromir Jagr. NHL stars Keith Tkachuk and Martin Brodeur were also selected in the first round of that draft.

After playing three seasons in the Western Hockey League with the Saskatoon Blades, Scissons made his NHL debut with the Islanders, appearing in one game at the end of the 1990–91 season. He then spent the 1991–92 season playing with the Canadian National Hockey Team. However, he was not chosen to represent Canada at the 1992 Winter Olympics.

Scissons spent the 1992–93 season playing with the Islanders' AHL affiliate, the Capital District Islanders. He did, however, appear in one game with New York during the 1993 Stanley Cup Playoffs. He appeared in one more game with New York during the 1993–94 season, and spent the remainder of the year with the Salt Lake Golden Eagles of the International Hockey League. He then played 30 IHL games in the 1994–95 season with the Minnesota Moose and Denver Grizzlies.

Unfortunately, Scissons suffered a shoulder injury near the end of his WHL (junior) career, and its nagging quality forced him into early retirement in 1995.

In his short NHL career, Scissons appeared in two regular-season and one playoff game, going scoreless.
