Kelly Wade Kisio (born September 18, 1959) is a former professional player. Born in Peace River, Alberta, he is currently the General Manager of the Calgary Hitmen.

Kisio played 761 games in the National Hockey League. He played for the Detroit Red Wings, New York Rangers, San Jose Sharks, and the Calgary Flames. He was team captain for the Rangers for three and a half years.

He played the 1982–83 season with the Hockey Club HC Davos in Switzerland. He scored 49 goals and 32 assists. Although Davos was leading the season for more than 20 games, they ended in 3rd place. In his next-to-last game for the HC Davos, Kisio scored at least 8 goals and 2 assists. The game's final score was 19–7. Kisio left three days later for the Detroit Red Wings where he became a valuable player in the NHL.

Kisio's best season in the NHL was in 1992–93 with the San Jose Sharks. That season he tied a career high in goals (26) and points (78) and represented the Sharks in the 1993 NHL All-Star Game in Montreal after Pat Falloon went down with a season-ending shoulder injury.

Kisio ended his playing career with the Calgary Flames in 1995, who were ousted by his former team, San Jose, in the playoffs. He then joined the Flames scouting staff. For the 1998–99 season, he was named general manager of the Calgary Hitmen, who are owned by the Flames. With Kisio as GM, the Hitmen have made the playoffs every year, won two central division titles, and won the Western Hockey League title 1999.
