Paul Robert Ysebaert (born May 15, 1966) is a former professional ice hockey player. During his fourteen years playing career in the National Hockey League, Ysebaert played left wing for the New Jersey Devils, Detroit Red Wings, Winnipeg Jets, Chicago Blackhawks, and Tampa Bay Lightning. Ysebaert accumulated a total of 336 points in 532 games during his career.
Ysebaert was one of the more popular players in Detroit during the early 1990s after arriving in a trade from the New Jersey Devils. Earning the nickname "Rocket Man" from the fans, he enjoyed his best season in 1991–92, with 35 goals and 40 assists. The same year he became the first Red Wing to win the NHL Plus-Minus Award. Ysebaert was dealt to the Winnipeg Jets before the 1993–94 season for former University of Michigan defenceman Aaron Ward. He currently does work on behalf of the Red Wings Alumni Association. Paul was named first captain of the Tampa Bay Lightning franchise.
