Nathan Marsters (January 28, 1980 – June 8, 2009[1]) was a professional ice hockey goaltender.

Marsters was initially drafted by the Los Angeles Kings 165th overall in the 2000 NHL entry draft but signed as a free agent by the Anaheim Ducks in November 2005. He never managed to play in the NHL however. After spells with various minor league teams, Marsters had short spells in Germany's Deutsche Eishockey Liga with the Krefeld Pinguine and the Erste Bank Eishockey Liga with Graz 99ers before retiring in 2008.

Nathan Marsters played college hockey at Rensselaer, during which he gained national attention as a figure in the Proposition 65–1 debate.

Marsters was killed in an automobile accident in West Lincoln, Ontario, on June 8, 2009, when a deer crashed through the windshield of his truck. He is survived by his wife Olivia.[1][2]
