Nicolas Lesage (born January 3, 1980) is a retired Canadian soccer player who played as a striker.

Lesage began his career at the college level during his enrollment at Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. Upon his graduation from university, Lesage would sign with the Montreal Impact. His tenure at Montreal was an unsuccessful experience where he failed to debut for the club, which ultimately led to him being released from his contract. Following his release from the Impact, Lesage's soccer career went into a temporarily stagnation stage, which resulted in him spenting time in local amateur leagues. Afters of years of obscurity in Canadian soccer, Lesage's career received a major boost once he signed with the Trois-Rivières Attak of the Canadian Soccer League.

It was at Trois-Rivieres that established Lesage into a consistent forward that dominated the CSL, and brought the Attak to a position of prestige among the league. Under Marc Dos Santos direction, Lesage became Trois-Rivieres' all-time leading scorer with 31 goals in all competitions. He assisted the club by claiming their first Open Canada Cup and National Division title; he was awarded the Canadian Soccer League MVP Award, and the CSL Golden Boot becoming the first person in CSL history to win two individual awards in a season. Lesage spent his final season with Trois-Rivieres as club captain, leading them to CSL Cup final in 2008. In January 2009, after only two years with the Attak, he announced his retirement from soccer to become the Head Coach for the Sélect Trois-Rivières.
