Lukas "Harry" Aurednik was an Austrian football player and coach.

Aurednik was born on February 20, 1918 in Vienna. He started his career with minor club Staatsfabrik before joining Rapid Vienna in 1935. In 1938 he joined Neuendorf and, in 1940, Bruenn (Brno) in occupied Czechland. With Bruenn, Aurednik won the Sudeten championship in 1943. The following year he joined Markesdorf and, in 1945, returned to Rapid.

Following the war, Aurednik played in France for RC Roubaix before returning to Austria to make a name for himself as a top defender for Austria Vienna (1948 - 1953). After 1953, he played for two French clubs (Lens and Le Havre) before retiring.

When his playing days were over, Aurednik took up coaching. In 1960, during the first season of the Greek Alpha Ethniki, he nearly led AEK to the championship, losing the title on the final match day. He also coached Pierikos Katerini.

Aurednik died on June 2, 1997.
