Dave Chyzowski (born July 11, 1971 in Edmonton, Alberta) is a professional ice hockey player who was selected second overall in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Islanders after a stellar junior career with the Kamloops Blazers. Chyzowski is recognized as a draft bust, however, as he only played 126 NHL games between 1989 and 1995, scoring a mere 31 points. He spent his career with the Islanders and the Chicago Blackhawks. As of 2006 he was playing for Linz EHC in the Austrian League. He has recently taken over the position of Marketing Coordinator for the Kamloops Blazers Hockey Club.

DaveChyzowski was the Islanders first round pick, 2nd overall, in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft.
Chyzowski was a raw talent at this stage and due to the reputation he had gained over his shot had developed an oversized ego.
In 1991-92 it seemed as though Dave was turning a corner when during the preseason, due to the absence of star Pat LaFontaine because of a contract squabble, he was placed on the top line with Brent Sutter and Patrick Flatley.
