Pierre Creamer (born July 6, 1944 in Chomedey, Quebec) is a former Canadian ice hockey coach. Creamer was head coach of the Pittsburgh Penguins during the 1987–88 NHL season. He is also brother in law to former NHL star Mike Bossy.
Creamer previously coached the Sherbrooke Canadiens, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens. He led the team to a Calder Cup championship in his first year behind the bench and ended his three year tenure with a 120-104-4 record. Creamer had also held a job as coach of the Verdun Juniors of the QMJHL.
Despite coaching a Mario Lemieux-led team that finished fourth in goals scored, Creamer's 1987-88 Penguins struggled defensively and finished last in the Patrick Division. He was relieved of his position at season's end; Creamer is currently the only "one year wonder" coach in NHL history to have a winning record.
