Ty Jones (born February 22, 1978, in Richland, Washington, U.S.) is an American professional ice hockey winger. He was drafted in the first round of the 1997 NHL Entry Draft with the 16th overall pick by the Chicago Blackhawks.

After playing four seasons in the Western Hockey League, with the Spokane Chiefs and Kamloops Blazers, he made his NHL debut with the Blackhawks. After appearing in eight games for the Blackhawks in the 1998–99 season, Jones returned to the minor leagues. He made one more appearance on an NHL roster, playing in six games for the Florida Panthers in the 2003–04 season.

Ty was once considered the top prospect in the Chicago Blackhawks system and comparisons were being made between him and Keith Tkachuk.

Ty was also involved in a lawsuit with his former employer the Norfolk Admirals over a shoulder injury he sustained during a fight. The Virginia Workers Compensation Commission and the Virginia Court of Appeals sided with Jones. Jones returned the next season for the Admirals but was released for violating team rules in February 2004. After playing six games for the Florida Panthers, he was sent to the minors, and after two games with the minor league team, the San Antonio Rampage, he quit hockey.
