Dave Chyzowski (born July 11, 1971 in Edmonton, Alberta) is a former professional left winger who was selected second overall in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Islanders after a stellar junior career with the Kamloops Blazers.

Chyzowski is generally recognized as a draft bust, as he only played 126 NHL games between 1989 and 1995, scoring a mere 31 points. He was chosen ahead of fellow first round picks Bill Guerin, Stu Barnes, and Bobby Holik. Chyzowski spent his career with the Islanders and then the Chicago Blackhawks. While Chyzwoski did not have an impact at the NHL level, he did carve out a nice career in the minor leagues, particularly the AHL and IHL. His best minor league season was 95–96, when he had 83 points on 44 goals and 39 assists, along with 160 penalty minutes for the Adirondack Red Wings.

In 2006 he was playing for Linz EHC in the Austrian League. He has recently taken over the position of Marketing Coordinator for the Kamloops Blazers Hockey Club. (December 12th, 2006)
