Johnny Frederick Peirson (born 21 July 1925 in Winnipeg, Manitoba) 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.
