Daniel Kenneth Newman (born January 26, 1952 in Windsor, Ontario) is a former professional ice hockey player in Canada and the United States.

Left-winger Dan Newman played 126 NHL games for three different teams between 1976 and 1980. He had natural offensive talent and was capable of mixing it up when the game turned rough.

The native of Windsor, Ontario played two seasons with St. Clair College then split the 1972–73 season between the AHL and IHL. He then played three years with the Port Huron Wings/Flags and scored 39 goals in 1975–76 for the New York Rangers affiliate. Newman played 100 games for the Rangers over two seasons.

Newman was claimed on waivers by the powerhouse Montreal Canadiens and he played 16 games for them in 1978–79. He also dressed for one playoff game, but did not play. His name was left off the Stanley Cup, because he did not qualify. He was traded to the Edmonton Oilers in 1979–80 along with Dave Lumley in exchange for the draft pick the Habs used to take Ric Nattress. Newman retired in 1980 after playing ten games in Edmonton and the rest in the minors. He currently is playing with the Detroit Red Wings Alumni.
