Herbert Martin Gardiner (May 8, 1891 – January 11, 1972) was a Canadian professional defenceman who played for the Montreal Canadiens and Chicago Black Hawks in the National Hockey League. He also played for the WCHL's Calgary Tigers.

Gardiner turned pro with the Calgary Tigers in 1921 at the rather old age of 30, having playesd senior hockey in western Canada until then. He helped the Tigers make the 1924 Stanley Cup Finals where they lost to the Montreal Canadiens.

When the league and the Tigers folded in 1926, Gardiner was sold to the Canadiens where he won the Hart Trophy as NHL most valuable player in the 1926-27 season.

The following season he was loaned to the Chicago Black Hawks and was their playing-coach until the Canadiens recalled him for the playoffs.

In 1928 he was sold to the Boston Bruins and became the playing coach of the Philadelphia Arrows of the Canadian-American Hockey League.

Gardiner continued as coach and/or general manager of various Philadelphia minor pro teams until 1946, when he retired.

He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1958.
