Gord Charles "Gordie" Byers (March 11, 1930 - November 2, 2001) was a Canadian ice hockey player.

After spending his junior days with the Copper Cliff Redmen and the St. Catharines Teepees, Byers played one game in the National Hockey League for the Boston Bruins during the 1949-50 season as well as two games for the Boston Olympics. The next season, Byers would then have spells in the United States Hockey League for the Kansas City Mohawks and the Tulsa Oilers in what would turn out to be the USHL's final year in operation before folding. He would end up returning to the Olympics for a season before joining the Troy Uncle Sam Trojans. Ironically, both teams folded at the conclusion of the respective seasons with the Trojans folding after just one season. After a season of senior hockey with the Chatham Maroons, Byers finished his career in the Northern Ontario Hockey Association with the Sudbury Wolves before retiring.
