Dwayne Norris (born January 8, 1970, in St. John's, Newfoundland) is a professional ice hockey right winger.

He started his hockey career with the St. John's Jr. Caps of the St. John's Junior Hockey League. Norris then left home at the age of 14 to play with the Notre Dame Hounds in Saskatchewan. He then went on to play college hockey with Michigan State University.

From there he joined the American Hockey League's Cornwall Aces after being drafted by the parent Quebec Nordiques 127th overall in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft.

He played in the National Hockey League with the Quebec Nordiques and the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim for parts of three seasons. Norris played in 20 NHL games, scoring 2 goals and 4 assists.

Norris has played in Germany since 1996, playing for Kölner Haie and the Frankfurt Lions where he has become one of the league's elite players. In 2007 he became the General Manager of the Frankfurt Lions and will must likely be there for another 3 years.

His most memorable moment may be during the 1990 World Junior Hockey Championship in Helsinki where he scored the winning goal to give Canada the Gold Medal over Czechoslovakia. During the 1994 Olympics he helped Canada to the Silver Medal.

Don Cherry once referred to Norris as "One of the best Damn skaters to come out of this Country". Cherry also stated numerous times that he should have been given more ice time in Quebec and Aheheim.

His younger brother, Warren Norris, is also a professional ice hockey player.
