John Francis "Jack" Hughes (born July 20, 1957 in Somerville, Massachusetts) is a retired American professional ice hockey forward who played 46 games in the National Hockey League for the Colorado Rockies. He played with the 1980 U.S Olympic team, who would eventually go on to defeat the highly favoured Soviet Union team in the famous "Miracle on Ice" game. However, he was cut shortly before the beginning of the Olympics, and never got to play with the team as they won the gold medal.
