Barry Fraser (born February 10, 1940) is a Canadian former ice hockey executive who was the Director of Scouting for the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League from 1979 to 2000. He is now retired and is residing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.


Born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Fraser attempted a professional hockey career as a player but his career was cut short due to knee injuries. He decided to pursue his dreams of being in the National Hockey League as a scout.

Fraser has been credited with building the foundation which led to the Oilers' dynasty of 1983-1990. He was present when drafting big name players such as, Wayne Gretzky, Grant Fuhr, Kevin Lowe, Mark Messier, Glenn Anderson, Paul Coffey, and many more. In 1983, the Edmonton Oilers went to the Stanley Cup for the first time. They did not win, but proved Fraser a legitimate drafting scout. His name is on the Stanley Cup 5 times with Edmonton in 1984, 1985, 1987, 1988, 1990.[1]
