Eric P. Beaudoin (born May 3, 1980 in Ottawa, Ontario) is a professional ice hockey forward, currently an unrestricted free agent who most recently played with the EHC Olten of the NLB. He has previously played in the National Hockey League with the Florida Panthers.
Eric Beaudoin was drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. He started his hockey career in the OHL, and has played for the Florida Panthers in the NHL as well as several AHL teams. In the fall of 2005, he signed with the Newcastle Vipers, but was released from his contract for a one-month tryout with Jokerit in the Finnish SM-liiga.
When he was not signed on after the tryout, Beaudoin agreed to a subsequent two-game tryout with HPK that also did not lead to a contract. Eventually Beaudoin agreed to a contract for the rest of the season with Ässät, but instead signed with Mora IK in the Swedish Elitserien. He stayed in Mora for three years before signing a one-year contract with Swedish top-team Linköpings HC. After concluding a one-year contract with Linköpings, in May 2009, he signed another one-year term contract with Rögle BK.
Beaudoin enjoyed parts of three seasons with Biel, before joining as a free agent to sign with German club, Straubing Tigers of the DEL on June 23, 2013. After just 10 games with the Tigers, Beaudoin opted for a release from his contract to return to Biel.
In the 2014–15 season, Beaudoin signed an optional two-year contract with Croatian club, KHL Medveščak Zagreb of the KHL. He played in three games in Zagreb before suffering a season-ending injury.
In January 2016, as a free agent, he inked a deal in a return to Switzerland with NLB club, EHC Olten for the remainder of the 2015–16 season. When Olten sacked head coach Heikki Leime during the playoff semifinal series in March 2016, Beaudoin took on head coaching duties alongside sport director Jakob Kölliker on an interim basis.
