Eugene Carrigan (July 5, 1907 in Edmonton, Alberta – March 15, 1945) was a professional hockey centre who played three seasons in the National Hockey League for the New York Rangers, Detroit Red Wings and St. Louis Eagles.

He played junior hockey in Edmonton from 1923 to 1925 and turned pro with the Edmonton Eskimos in 1926-27 and played minor pro in western North America until 1928, when he joined the Springfield Indians. He led the Canadian American Hockey League in goals with 28 in 1929-30, which got him into the New York Rangers in 1930-31. Carrigan scored only 2 goals in 33 games, which got him sent back to the minors.

The Detroit Red Wings called him up for four playoff games in 1933-34, and the St. Louis Eagles brought him in for 4 games in 1934-35. He then went back to the minors.

In 1941-42 Carrigan was the player-coach of the Fort Worth Rangers of the American Hockey Association and retired at the end of that season.
