Gord Stellick (born May 26, 1957 in Toronto, Ontario) is a Canadian sports broadcaster and former NHL executive. Stellick formerly hosted The Fan 590 Morning Show with Don Landry, and also appears on Hockey Central on Rogers Sportsnet. Currently, Stellick serves as host of the pre-game edition of "Blue And White Tonight" between 6PM-7PM on The Fan 590 during the game nights that the Toronto Maple Leafs play as well as the post-game edition of the show.

Stellick was the General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs from April 1988 until August 1989. At the age of 30, he was the youngest GM in NHL history. He resigned on August 11, 1989, citing interference from Maple Leaf's owner Harold Ballard.[1] Stellick was then hired by the New York Rangers as an assistant GM, but was fired in 1991.[2][3] Stellick was once co-owner of the Toronto Beaches Jr. A lacrosse team. Stellick can be seen on TV as a commentator for hockey games.

Stellick co-wrote, with Damien Cox, the book '67: The Maple Leafs, Their Sensational Victory and the End of an Empire, (ISBN 0-470-83850-7) about the last season the Toronto Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup.
