Maxwell Herbert Lloyd Bentley (March 1, 1920 โ€“ January 19, 1984) was a Canadian professional ice hockey forward who played for the Chicago Black Hawks, Toronto Maple Leafs, and New York Rangers in the National Hockey League.

Bentley won the 1946 Hart Memorial Trophy. In 1947, he was traded to the Maple Leafs along with Cy Thomas for Gus Bodnar, Bud Poile, Gaye Stewart (who were collectively known as the Flying Forts Line), Ernie Dickens, and Bob Goldham. The trade would pay off for the Leafs as they won a Stanley Cup in three of the next four seasons, but not for the Hawks, who hit rock bottom in the NHL eight seasons out of the next ten.

His brother, Doug Bentley, played on the "Pony Line" with him, along with Bill Mosienko, while with Chicago.

Bentley was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1966. In 1998, he was ranked number 48 on The Hockey News' list of the 100 Greatest Hockey Players.

Bentley died of heart disease.
