Aleš Píša (born January 2, 1977) is a Czech professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for Pardubice of the Czech Extraliga. He was chosen as an over-age selection in the ninth round of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, 272nd overall, by the Edmonton Oilers.

After spending most of his professional career with his hometown team of Pardubice, Píša made his North American debut with the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League (AHL). He saw spot duty with the Oilers his first year, playing in only two games, but the following season, he remained with the Oilers until the trade deadline. At the deadline, Píša was shipped to the New York Rangers as part of a package that brought back Radek Dvořák.

Píša played just three games for the Rangers to finish the year, and signed with Severstal Cherepovets of the Russian Superleague (RSL) in 2003–04, a team he remained with throughout the NHL lockout.

Píša played the 2005–06 season with Khimik Moscow Oblast of the RSL, and was one of the team's top players, leading all Mytishi Khimik defenceman in points.
