Dino Ciccarelli (born February 8, 1960 in Sarnia, Ontario) is a Canadian former professional hockey player who played 19 seasons in the National Hockey League, primarily with the Minnesota North Stars. His 651 points with that franchise are the fourth-most in club history, and third-most when taking into account only statistics accumulated before the team moved to Texas. He scored 1,200 points in his NHL career.

Ciccarelli is considered by many to be one of the best players in league history never to have won a Stanley Cup. The closest he came was making the Cup Finals in 1981 during his rookie season with the North Stars versus the New York Islanders or in 1995 with the Detroit Red Wings, when they were beaten by the New Jersey Devils. He left the team and joined the Tampa Bay Lightning before the 1996–97 season, one that would see the Red Wings win the Cup.

Ciccarelli's career featured several controversial moments, both on and off the ice. In 1987 he pleaded guilty to indecent exposure and received probation. Then on January 6, 1988, in a game played at Maple Leaf Gardens, Ciccarelli attacked Maple Leafs defenceman Luke Richardson with his stick. As a result of this incident, Ciccarelli was convicted of assault, fined $1000, and sentenced to one day in jail.

After retiring, Ciccarelli allegedly had several physical altercations with members of the media. Some have criticized the Hockey Hall of Fame for focusing on issues other than hockey for his exclusion, but others point out that the induction committee has maintained such integrity in order to avoid tarnishing such an honour.

Ciccarelli's number 8 was also retired by his junior team, the London Knights.

Ciccarelli owns the upscale nightclub Club 22 in Shelby Charter Township, Michigan.
