Chris Kushneriuk (born December 24, 1986) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player and cancer survivor. He is currently an unrestricted free agent who last played with the Florida Everblades of the ECHL.

Kushneriuk played NCAA Division I hockey with both the Wayne State Warriors and the Robert Morris Colonials.[1] In his junior season he was recognized for his outstanding play when he was named to the 2009–10 All-CHA Second Team.[2]

On March 4, 2011, Kushneriuk began his professional hockey career when he signed with the Wheeling Nailers of the ECHL.[3] He stayed with the Nailers until December 4, 2011, when he was traded to the Bakersfield Condors in exchange for defenceman Adam Ross.[4] On June 26, 2012, the Condors signed Kushneriuk to an extension to keep him with the team through to the end of the 2012–13 ECHL season,[5] but prior to the start of the new season he was diagnosed testicular cancer[6] and unwent both chemotherapy and surgical procedures to battle the cancer.[7]

By February 2014, Kushneriuk reported he was cancer free and was cleared to once again play hockey.[8] On March 5, 2014, Kushneriuk resumed his professional career when he suited up with the Las Vegas Wranglers in a game against the Idaho Steelheads.

On July 17, 2014, Kushneriuk joined his fourth ECHL club, signing as a free agent on a one-year contract with the Florida Everblades.[9]
