André Charles Peloffy (born February 25, 1951 in Sète, France and raised in Sainte-Lucie-des-Laurentides, Quebec) is a retired French ice hockey forward. He was the first person born in France to play in the National Hockey League (NHL).
Drafted by the New York Rangers in the 1971 NHL Entry Draft, Peloffy never played for the Rangers and was traded to the Washington Capitals prior to the 1974–75 NHL season and played nine games during the team's inaugural season. His principal success came in the American Hockey League with the Springfield Indians, Providence Reds and Richmond Robins. He won the John B. Sollenberger Trophy as the AHL's scoring champion with the Springfield Indians in 1976–77.
After his North American hockey career, he played professionally in Europe for ten seasons, and became France's all-time leading scorer in international play, scoring 55 points in 42 games for the national team. He retired after the 1989 season.
