Jim Cowell (born October 18, 1953) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player. He was selected by the Vancouver Canucks in the 6th round (83rd overall) of the 1973 NHL Amateur Draft, and was also drafted by the Los Angeles Sharks in the 4th round (47th overall) of the 1973 WHA Amateur Draft.

Cowell played major junior hockey with the Ottawa 67's of the Ontario Hockey League. In the summer of 1973 he was selected in both the NHL and WHA drafts, however he broke his ankle while attending the Vancouver Canucks training camp forcing him to miss the start of the 1973-74 season.[1] Cowell never played in the major leagues, but he did go on to play 14 seasons of professional hockey in the minor leagues.
