Brian Stephen Ihnacak (born April 10, 1985) is a Canadian-born Italian professional ice hockey forward who currently plays for HC Sparta Praha of the Czech Extraliga.
Ihnacak was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, going 259th overall. With the National Hockey League reducing the number of rounds in the NHL Entry Draft from nine to seven in 2005, Ihnacak currently holds the distinction of being the last Pittsburgh Penguins draft selection to be drafted in the ninth round. The NHL Central Scouting service had Brian ranked 44th overall in North America before the 2004 NHL draft.
Ihnacak competed at the 2014 IIHF World Championship as a member of the Italy men's national ice hockey team.
Brian's father, Peter Ihnacak, was a former Toronto Maple Leafs draft pick who was selected 34th overall in the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. His uncle, Miroslav Ihnacak, was also drafted and played for the Maple Leafs. Miroslav later played for the Detroit Red Wings.
