Ronald Thomas Harris (born June 30, 1942 in Verdun, Quebec) is a retired professional ice hockey player who played 476 games in the National Hockey League. He played for the Detroit Red Wings, California Golden Seals, Atlanta Flames, and New York Rangers.

On January 13, 1968, Harris, playing with the Oakland Seals against the Minnesota North Stars, was involved in the accident that caused the death of Bill Masterton. Harris has conducted only one interview on this subject (with the St. Paul Pioneer Press in 2003) where he states "It bothers you the rest of your life. It wasn't dirty and it wasn't meant to happen that way. Still, it's very hard because I made the play. It's always in the back of my mind."

Coached the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League.
