Michael Stephen Volcan (born March 3, 1962) is a Canadian retired ice hockey defenceman who played 162 National Hockey League games for the Hartford Whalers and Calgary Flames from 1980 until 1984. He recorded eight goals and 33 assists in his career. Volcan was a third round draft pick, 50th overall by the Whalers in the 1980 NHL Entry Draft. He was the youngest player in the NHL in the 1980–81 season. Volcan retired following the 1990–91 season.
On January 15, 1983, Volcan (as a member of the Hartford Whalers) and Garry Howatt (as a member of the New Jersey Devils) become the only active players to officiate an NHL game when a snowstorm prevented a referee, Ron Fournier, and a linesman, Ron Asselstine, from reaching the Hartford Civic Center for a game between the Whalers and Devils.
