Michael Dwyer (born September 16, 1957 in Brampton, Ontario) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey forward. Dwyer was drafted by both the Colorado Rockies in the 5th round, 74th overall in the 1977 NHL Entry Draft and by the Houston Aeros in the 10th round, 82nd overall of the 1977 WHA Entry Draft.
Dwyer played 32 National Hockey League games for the Rockies and the Calgary Flames over parts of four seasons between 1978–79 and 1981–82, recording three goals and six assists. He spent much of his professional career playing for several teams in the Central Hockey League.
In the 1980-81 NHL playoffs, the Calgary flames called Dwyer up from the minor league for a game against the Minnesota North Stars. Although the flames lost the game, Dwyer was very successful in his playoff debut, marking a goal in the third period. He is one of only a few people to ever score a NHL playoff goal.
