Marc Bureau (born May 19, 1966 in Trois-Rivières, Quebec) is a retired Canadian ice hockey centre who played in the National Hockey League for the Calgary Flames, Minnesota North Stars, Tampa Bay Lightning, Montreal Canadiens and Philadelphia Flyers.

In his prime, Bureau was considered in the upper echelon of defensive centres in the NHL. Never drafted by an NHL team, he was signed as a free agent by the Calgary Flames after scoring 54 goals for the Longueuil Chevaliers in 1986-87. With Calgary's logjam at the centre position, Bureau was traded to Minnesota for a 3rd round choice (Sandy McCarthy) in 1991. He was claimed by the newly formed Tampa Bay Lightning in the 1992 NHL Expansion Draft, where he would enjoy his most successful years in the NHL. In 1995 he was traded to the Montreal Canadiens for veteran forward Brian Bellows.

Bureau was injured in practice as a member of the AHL's Saint John Flames in October 2000. He would never play again.

He played in 567 NHL games, scoring 55 goals and 83 assists. In the playoffs, Bureau played in 50 games with 5 goals and 7 assists..
