Frank Reginald Carson (January 12, 1902 – April 21, 1957) was a National Hockey League right wing from 1926 to 1934. He was born in Bracebridge, Ontario. Frank was one of three Carson brothers to play in the NHL, along with younger brother Gerry and older brother Bill. He won a Stanley Cup championship in 1926 with the Montreal Maroons. He retired after 246 games, recording 42 goals and 48 assists for a total of 90 points.

He played junior hockey with the Stratford Midgets from 1919 to 1922 and then with the senior Stratford Indians from 1921 to the middle of the 1925-26 season. He then signed with the Montreal Maroons in time to be a part of their Stanley Cup-winning season. He played the 1926-27 season for the Maroons but was sent down to the Stratford Nationals in the 1927-28 season.

Carson stayed in the minors until 1930-31 when he was traded to the New York Americans with whom he played that season. In 1931 he was again traded, this time to the Detroit Falcons. He played three very successful seasons with the renamed Red Wings.

He retired in 1934 and became an amateur hockey coach in Windsor, Ontario.
