Mario Larocque (born April 24, 1978 in Montreal, Quebec) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for the Nottingham Panthers in the Elite Ice Hockey League in the United Kingdom.


Larocque was drafted in the first-round, 16th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning in 1996, but only managed to play 5 NHL games for the Lightning during the 1998–99 NHL season, scoring no points with 16 penalty minutes. He spent the rest of that season in the International Hockey League with the Cleveland Lumberjacks before playing two seasons with the Detroit Vipers of the same league. After the IHL folded, he was signed by the Buffalo Sabres but was assigned to the American Hockey League with the Rochester Americans and never saw any ice time with the Sabres. He spent the next five seasons in the ECHL with the Wheeling Nailers and the United Hockey League with the Danbury Trashers and the Fort Wayne Komets, along with brief spells in the AHL for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. In 2007, he joined Austrian team HC TWK Innsbruck and in September 2008 to Sport Ghiaccio Pontebba and December 1, 2008 to EC Red Bull Salzburg. He signed with the Nottingham Panthers on November 5, 2009.

Like many of those chosen in the 1st round of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft, Larocque is considered a bust, playing in only five career NHL games to date.
