Peter Driscoll (born October 27, 1954) is a former professional ice hockey left wing in the WHA and NHL. He was born in Powassan, Ontario.

Selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft and the Vancouver Blazers in the 1974 WHA Amateur Draft, Driscoll signed with the Blazers, moving to Calgary with them when they relocated.

After the Calgary Cowboys folded, he signed as a free agent with the Quebec Nordiques and was later traded to the Indianapolis Racers, where he was part of the deal that sent Wayne Gretzky to the Edmonton Oilers in 1978 with Eddie Mio.[1]

Moving to the NHL with the Oilers, he did not see much action and split time between Edmonton and their CHL affiliates in Houston and Wichita.
