Dmitri Valerievich Tertyshny (Russian: Дмитрий Валерьевич Тертышный) (December 26, 1976 – July 23, 1999) was a Russian professional ice hockey defenceman who played one season in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Philadelphia Flyers and four seasons in Russia for Traktor Chelyabinsk.
After spending a year with Traktor Chelyabinsk of the CIS/Russian League, Tertyshny was selected in the sixth round with the Flyers' #132 overall draft pick in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He spent three more seasons with Chelyabinsk before joining the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1998–99 season.
On July 23, 1999, during the offseason after his rookie NHL campaign, Tertyshny was on a boating trip to Okanagan Lake in British Columbia with two players from the Flyers' minor-league affiliate Philadelphia Phantoms, Francis Belanger and Mikhail Chernov, when a freak accident caused him to suffer fatal injuries. The boat hit a wave and caused him to fall forward overboard. The boat ran over him and its propeller slashed his neck and his jugular vein.
