John Frederick Peirson (born July 21, 1925) is a retired National Hockey League player who played right wing for the Boston Bruins.

Peirson finished his NHL career with 153 goals and 173 assists for 326 points in 545 games, and played in the NHL All-Star Game in 1950 and 1951. Following his retirement, Peirson became a prominent broadcast color analyst for the Bruins, first on WBZ radio with Fred Cusick -- with whom as a player he had done a TV demonstration during one of CBS-TV's short-lived weekly NHL telecasts—then on WSBK television, initially with Don Earle and then for many years with Cusick, who had moved from radio to TV. During World War II, he served in the Canadian Army.[1]
