Lane MacDonald (born March 3, 1966 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, United States) is a retired ice hockey player. Born in Tulsa as the son of former NHL player Lowell MacDonald, Lane was a prep star at the University School of Milwaukee, and grew up in Pittsburgh, PA. Drafted by the Calgary Flames, MacDonald chose to attend Harvard University, where he graduated with four school scoring records (including career goals), and ranking in the top five in 11 different statistical categories; he studied philosophy under the tutelage of Alexander George. He was twice named a first-team All-American. MacDonald took a year off from Harvard in 1987-88 to play member of the United States's 1988 Winter Olympics team in Calgary. MacDonald would return to Harvard as team capatain to win the 1989 Hobey Baker Award, given to the top collegiate ice hockey player while at Harvard University, and leading the Crimson to the NCAA Championship. After college he played for HC Lugano is the Swiss League before recrurring migraine headaches forced him to retire. He attempted a brief comeback with the 1992 US Hockey team in preparation for Albertville Olympics, but left competitive hockey for good prior to the Winter Games. He then went to Stanford Business School and is now a General Partner in a Boston area private equity firm, where he lives with his wife and three children.

He was inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in 2005.
