James M. Pushor (born February 11, 1973) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player. He is currently a pro scout with the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League (NHL).

He was drafted 32nd overall in the 2nd round of the 1991 NHL Entry Draft by the Detroit Red Wings. He played in the NHL for the Red Wings, Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, Dallas Stars, Columbus Blue Jackets, Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers. He won a Stanley Cup in 1997 with the Red Wings.

As a free agent (previously playing for the Columbus Blue Jackets), he was acquired by the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2003 on a try-out contract in the off season. Jamie however, failed to make the cut for the team on the try-out contract.

Pushor presumably retired during the 2006–07 campaign, after abruptly leaving the Syracuse Crunch mid-season.
