Robert Corkum (born December 18, 1967, in Salisbury, Massachusetts, U.S.) is a retired American professional ice hockey center. He was drafted in the third round, 47th overall, by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1986 NHL Entry Draft.

After playing four seasons for the University of Maine, Corkum debuted with Buffalo's American Hockey League affiliate, the Rochester Americans, in the 1989–90 season. He also appeared in eight regular season games and five playoff games with the Sabres during the 1989–90 season. After playing for the Americans and Sabres for the next three seasons, Corkum was chosen by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in the 1993 NHL Expansion Draft.

After the Mighty Ducks, Corkum made stops with the Philadelphia Flyers, Phoenix Coyotes, Los Angeles Kings, New Jersey Devils, and Atlanta Thrashers. The Thrashers traded him back to the Sabres at the trade deadline of the 2001–02 season. After finishing the season with the Sabres, Corkum retired. In his NHL career, Corkum played in 720 games. He recorded 97 goals and 103 assists, for 200 total points. His best season came in 1993–94 with Anaheim, when he scored 23 goals and added 28 assists.

On August 22nd, 2008, it was announced that Bob will be returning to his alma mater to become the Associate Head Coach at The University of Maine. He spent the majority of the previous four seasons coaching junior hockey in the EJHL, and Maine High School hockey prior to that.
