Douglas Allen "Diesel" Mohns (born December 13, 1933 in Capreol, Ontario) is a retired professional ice hockey player who played 22 seasons in the National Hockey League from 1953–54 until 1974–75. Mohns twice won the most coveted prize in junior hockey, the Memorial Cup. He played on the 1951 and 1953 Barrie Flyers teams.

Mohns played 1390 career NHL games, scoring 248 goals and 462 assists for 710 points, as well as compiling 1250 penalty minutes. Mohns played both forward and defence in his career. Mohns joined the Boston Bruins in 1953, where he became a versatile cornerstone of that franchise for 11 seasons.

Mohns achieved much of his career success with the Chicago Black Hawks. He played left wing on one of the greatest lines in NHL history, the "Scooter Line", with centre Stan Mikita and right wing Kenny Wharram. Their speed and puck handling ability fueled the Black Hawks' high-powered offense in this time period. Mohns was also known as an enforcer for Bobby Hull. Mohns finished his career as a captain of the expansion Washington Capitals. He was one of the first players to wear a helmet, covering up an expansive bald spot.
