Michel Deziel (born January 31, 1954 in Sorel-Tracy, Quebec) is a former professional ice hockey left winger. He was drafted in the third round, 47th overall, by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft. He played just one game in the National Hockey League with the Sabres, appearing in a single playoff contest during the team's march to the Stanley Cup Finals in the 1974–75 season. He did not score a point.

Deziel was a star in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, one season (1973–74) scoring 227 points in 69 games for the Sorel Black Hawks, a team that averaged 8.9 goals per game.[1] The mark stands as the fourth-highest single-season point total in QMJHL history.

He was also drafted by the World Hockey Association's New England Whalers; however, he never played in that league.
