Thomas Joseph Daley (born February 20, 1943) is a former National Hockey League and World Hockey Association goaltender for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Buffalo Sabres, Detroit Red Wings, and Winnipeg Jets.
Daley was the Sabres' first choice in the 1970 Intra-League Draft. He was also one of the last NHL goalies to play without a mask, although he did wear a mask for Winnipeg in the WHA.
Daley's longest stint in major league hockey was with Winnipeg from 1972–79. He won three league championships with the Jets (1976–77 through 1978–79) and was the WHA's second leading goalie during the 1975–76 season. In 1981–82, he was the coach of the junior hockey Penticton Knights. Currently he operates a successful trading card store in Winnipeg, Manitoba, aptly named Joe Daley's Sports and Framing.
