Dwayne Zinger (born July 5, 1976 in Coronation, Alberta), is a Canadian ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL.

A hulking defenseman (6'4" 221 lbs), Zinger played four years of collegiate hockey at Alaska-Fairbanks where he was an All-WCHA Honorable Mention in his senior year before making his professional debut with the AHL's Cincinnati Mighty Ducks, after being signed by the Detroit Red Wings in the latter stages of the 99-2000 season. Over the course of the next four seasons, Zinger spent most of his time with Cincinnati before joining the AHL's Portland Pirates in the fall of 2002, after signing with Washington earlier that summer. Zinger spent the better part of two seasons in Portland before seeing his first NHL action with the Caps in the middle stages of the 2003-04 season.

On Thursday December 11th 2003, Dwayne made his NHL debut for the Washington Capitals in a game against the Boston Bruins. He only had 4 shifts and just over 2 minutes of ice time, but he did manage to get into a fight with Boston's Doug Doull. Then on Tuesday December 23rd, in which would be his final NHL game, he assisted on the game winning goal by Peter Bondra against the Montreal Canadians with only 54 seconds left in the game. This gave Dwayne his only NHL point in his 7th and last game. After his brief stint in the NHL he would return to the Portland Pirates until mid-way into the 2005-06 season, when he was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes by the Capitals in exchange for Doug Doull, the man he had fought in his very first NHL game. After his time with the Coyotes organization, he would go on to play for the Providence Bruins, for another two seasons. On May 20 2008, Zinger would then sign on with the Odense Bulldogs of the Danish Elite League. He would play one season there before again returning to Cincinnati to play for the Cyclones.
