Nicholas "Nick" Vachon (born July 20, 1972 in Montreal, Quebec) is a retired ice hockey player. He played one game for the New York Islanders.

He played for the Boston University Terriers in 1990-91 and 1991-92. In mid-season Vachon transferred to the major junior Portland Winterhawks until 1992-93.

The Toronto Maple Leafs chose him 241st overall in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft but never signed him. Vachon turned pro with the Knoxville Cherokees in 1993-94. He signed as a free agent with the Los Angeles Kings in September, 1995 and was traded to the New York Islanders two months later.

Vachon finally got into an NHL game with the Islanders in 1996-97 but that was to be his only one. He retired in 1998 after another minor pro season.

He is the son of former NHLer Rogie Vachon.
