Vojtěch Polák (born June 27, 1985) is an ice hockey left wing playing for the HC Oceláři Třinec of the Czech Extraliga. He was born in Ostrov, Czechoslovakia (now the Czech Republic). During the 2005–2006 season, he played significant time with the Iowa Stars, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Stars.

From the 2000–2001 season to the 2004–2005 season, Polák would spend his time in the Czech Extraliga. A vast majority of his games played with HC Energie Karlovy Vary, though he would also play for HC Dukla Jihlava and a single game for HC Sparta Praha. In the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, the Stars drafted him in the second round with the 36th overall pick.

In 2005, Polák played his first professional game in North America with the Iowa Stars, scoring what would be his first of 12 goals and 34 points with the team. After an impressive preseason with the Stars in September, he made his NHL debut on October 22 against the Calgary Flames. He dressed for three games with the Stars during the 2005–2006 season, going scoreless.

He returned to the Czech Republic in 2007 to play again for HC Energie Karlovy Vary. In 2008 he joined HC Oceláři Třinec.

Polák represented the Czech Republic at the 2004 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships.
