James Joseph Pappin (born September 10, 1939) is a retired professional ice hockey right winger. He won his first Stanley Cup in 1964 with the Toronto Maple Leafs. In 1967, Pappin led the NHL in playoff goals and points and won a second Stanley Cup with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He also scored the goal that would give the Leafs their final Stanley Cup in '67.

After playing for the AHL minor league Rochester Americans in the early 1960s, Pappin played in 767 career NHL games between 1963 and 1977, scoring 278 goals and 295 assists for 573 points. His best season statistically was the 1972–73 season, when he scored 41 goals and 92 points; both career highs. Pappin was the midseason replacement head coach of the IHL's Milwaukee Admirals for the 1984–85 season, with a team record of 12 wins and 14 losses. After retiring from hockey, he has been the Director of U.S. Scouting for the Chicago Blackhawks.

In 2007, Pappin was in the news when his Stanley Cup ring was found by a Florida treasure hunter.[1] Pappin eventually struck a deal with the treasure hunter and the ring was returned for a reward.[2]

He is currently a scout for the Anaheim Ducks.[3]
