Bryan McCabe (born June 8, 1975 in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada) is a defenceman for the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League. McCabe was selected by the New York Islanders in the second round (40th overall) in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft.

In his junior hockey years, McCabe played for the Medicine Hat Tigers (1991-1993), the Spokane Chiefs (1993-1995), and the Brandon Wheat Kings (1995) of the Western Hockey League. In 1994-1995, McCabe was chosen as a First-Team WHL All-Star. Additionally, he was a member of the Gold Medal-winning Canadian national teams at the World Junior Championships in both 1994 and 1995.

McCabe played for the New York Islanders, the Vancouver Canucks, and the Chicago Blackhawks before joining the Maple Leafs in 2000.

He finished fourth in Norris Trophy voting and was named to the Second All-Star Team at the culmination of the 2003-04 season. He signed with HV71 of the Swedish Elitserien when it was announced that the NHL season was facing a lockout. McCabe struggled in the Swedish Elite League and was fired from HV71 after accumulating a total of 1 goal and 0 assists in 10 games with 30 penalty minutes.

He was recognized as the NHL's Offensive Player of the Week for the week of November 13-19, 2005. McCabe ended the year with 19 goals and 49 assists, good enough for third overall amongst defenceman scoring, behind Nicklas Lidstrom and Sergei Zubov.
