Edmond Bouchard (May 25, 1892 in Saint-Étienne-des-Grès, Quebec, Canada – July 18 1955) was a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger who sometimes doubled as a defenceman.

He started in amateur hockey in Quebec playing for the Montreal Nationale, Quebec Crescents, Hochelaga, Quebec Voltigeurs, and three seasons with the Quebec Montagnais.

In 1921 he was thrown out of amateur hockey because it was said that he had received $50 per game while playing for the senior Hochelaga team in 1919-20.

Bouchard signed as a free agent with the Montreal Canadiens in 1921-22 but was traded to the Hamilton Tigers the next season for Joe Malone. He led the NHL in assists with 12 in 1922-23 ans stayed with the Tigers through 1924-25.

He moved with the rest of the team to the New York Americans in 1925 for three and a half years until he was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 1928-29 season.

After that season, Bouchard played three more years in the minor pros and retired in 1932.

In the NHL, Bouchard scored 19 goals and 21 assists in 211 games.
