Randall W. Moller (born August 23, 1963 in Red Deer, Alberta) is a retired professional ice hockey player. He was drafted in the first round, eleventh overall by the Quebec Nordiques in the 1981 National Hockey League (NHL) entry draft. The majority of his career was spent with the Quebec Nordiques. Moller played with the New York Rangers, Buffalo Sabres and the Florida Panthers.

He was featured on the cover of NHLPA Hockey '93 along with goaltender Mike Richter. Moller is the radio play-by-play announcer for the Florida Panthers, after spending nine years as a color analyst on Panthers radio. He is known for screaming a pop culture reference after Florida Panther goals, though not every goal, and not when the Panthers are out of the game. Examples such as references to Tracy Morgan on 30 Rock, a Christian Bale tirade, film quotes from Wedding Crashers, Jaws, & Forrest Gump, and others are included on a YouTube clip produced by The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz.

The goal calls by Randy Moller were done in conjunction with The Dan Le Batard Show, which shared the radio station that hosts the Florida Panthers radio play-by-play. The show and listeners provide Randy with numerous amounts of pop culture references, and he then chooses what he likes and uses it during games in situations he deems appropriate. He is the President of the Panthers Alumni Association.
