Daniel Hector Bouchard (born on December 12, 1950, in Val-d'Or, Quebec) is a retired professional ice hockey goaltender. He played in the National Hockey League with the Atlanta Flames, Calgary Flames, Quebec Nordiques, and Winnipeg Jets.

Career

As a junior, Bouchard backstopped the Sorel Black Hawks to the 1969 Memorial Cup. Bouchard was originally drafted by the Boston Bruins, but made his league debut in 1972–73 after the Flames claimed him in the 1972 NHL Expansion Draft. After eight seasons in Atlanta, the Flames franchise relocated to Calgary, Alberta in the summer of 1980. Halfway through the 1980–81 season, Bouchard was traded to the Quebec Nordiques for Jamie Hislop. He then led Quebec to their first playoff appearance since the 1979 WHA-NHL merger.

The following season was a magical one as the Nordiques lost in the semi-finals to the defending champion New York Islanders, who would go on to win their 3rd straight Stanley Cup. Along the way, Quebec disposed of the Montreal Canadiens, their most bitter rival, and then Boston in a pair of thrilling series. Each went down to the wire in the final game, but Quebec held on to win. In the 1985–86 season he was traded to the Winnipeg Jets, where he left the NHL after losing in the opening round to the Calgary Flames. He played 3 games for Fribourg-Gottéron in the 1986–87 season. He is currently the head coach for Life University of Marietta, Georgia.
