Alek Stojanov (b. April 25th 1973 in Windsor, Ontario) is a former professional right winger who played in the National Hockey League for the Vancouver Canucks and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Drafted seventh overall of the 1991 NHL Entry Draft by the Canucks from the Ontario Hockey League's Hamilton Dukes, Stojanov was supposed to become a two-way power forward; he however failed to establish himself as an offensive player in any league after the junior level. He obtained a mere 2 goals and 7 points in 107 NHL games; even in lower leagues, Stojanov could never score more than 26 points in a single season (in 2000-01, in 36 games with the Western Professional Hockey League's New Mexico Scorpions).

Stojanov is especially remembered for having been involved in one of the most lopsided trades of the NHL's history, as he was traded to Pittsburgh by Vancouver in return of Markus Näslund, who became a superstar with the Canucks.
