</div></div> Tomáš Malec (born May 13, 1982, in Skalica, Czechoslovakia now Slovakia) is a professional ice hockey defenceman. He was chosen in the third round, 64th overall, of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft by the Florida Panthers. Currently, he plays for HC Oceláři Třinec in the Czech Republic.

After playing two seasons in the QMJHL with Rimouski Océanic, during which the Florida Panthers traded his rights to the Carolina Hurricanes, Malec made his professional debut in the 2002 American Hockey League playoffs with the Hurricanes' affiliate, the Lowell Lock Monsters. He made his NHL debut in the 2002–03 season with the Carolina Hurricanes, appearing in 41 games and recording two assists.

Malec played two more games with Carolina during the 2003–04 season, and was traded, along with a draft pick, to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim after the season in exchange for goaltender Martin Gerber. During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Malec played with Anaheim's AHL affiliate, the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks.

Malec joined the Ottawa Senators organization for the 2005–06 season, playing in two NHL games with the Senators and spending the rest of the season with the AHL's Binghamton Senators. During the 2006–07 season, he was traded to the New York Islanders in exchange for Matt Koalska. He played for their AHL affiliate the Bridgeport Sound Tigers but never played for the Islanders. In 2007, he moved to the Czech Extraliga, signing with HC Oceláři Třinec.

In his NHL career, Malec has appeared in 46 games and tallied two assists. He has yet to record an NHL goal.
