Keith Magnuson (April 27 1947 - December 15 2003) was a professional ice hockey defenceman from Saskatoonmarker, Saskatchewanmarker, Canadamarker who played in the National Hockey League (NHL) between 1969 and 1979. Magnuson was killed in an auto accident in Vaughan, Ontariomarker with fellow NHL alumnus Rob Ramage behind the wheel (Ramage survived the accident, but was later found guilty of vehicular manslaughter).

Magnuson played 589 career NHL games, all with the Chicago Blackhawks, wearing # 3, and scoring 14 goals and 125 assists for 139 points. Although he didn't score many goals, he was a part of a solid defensive team with the Blackhawks. Perhaps his most telling statistic is his 1,442 career penalty minutes, which included a large number of fighting majors. For a few seasons, Magnuson was captain of the Chicago Blackhawks team. He never played for a Stanley Cup winner, losing in the finals twice in 1971 and 1973 both to the Montreal Canadiens. Prior to his NHL career, Magnuson was a two time All-American at the University of Denvermarker, who led his team to two consecutive NCAA titles in 1968 and 1969.

On November 12, 2008, the Chicago Blackhawks retired Magnuson's number 3, along with that of Hall of Fame defenseman Pierre Pilote, before a game against the Boston Bruins.
