Red Fisher (born 22 August 1926) is a former Canadian sports journalist whose columns focused on the National Hockey League and its Montreal Canadiens team.

Born in Montreal, he began his hockey coverage in The Montreal Star newspaper in 1954 where he remained as writer and sports editor until that paper's demise in 1979. Immediately after this, he joined the Montreal Gazette as sports editor (for a short time), where his columns continued to appear.

Fisher was the longest-serving beat writer covering an NHL team. Over his career, he worked for 10 editors and publishers, and won the Canadian National Newspaper Award three times. Fisher's retirement was announced by Gazette publisher Alan Allnutt in a column on 8 June 2012.[1]
