Joseph Lynn Patrick (February 3, 1912 in Victoria, British Columbia - January 26, 1980) was a Canadian professional ice hockey centre who played for the New York Rangers in the National Hockey League.

Lynn was an important member of one Stanley Cup title the Rangers won in 1940. He was married to film actress Dorothy Patrick. After his playing career, he went on to be the general manager of the Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues. It was he who introduced Scotty Bowman to coaching. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1980. He is the son of NHL Hall of Famer Lester Patrick, brother of fellow NHL player Muzz Patrick, and the father of Craig Patrick, the former Pittsburgh Penguins general manager, who served in that capacity from 1989 until 2006. His Uncle Frank Patrick is also a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, also with his father Lester Patrick, and son Craig Patrick.

He was on his way home from a game between the Colorado Rockies and the St. Louis Blues at the St. Louis Arena to walk the dog his daughter had given him, when he suffered a heart attack, and his car crashed into a fire hydrant. He died that night.

In 2009, Patrick was ranked No. 27 on the all-time list of New York Rangers in the book 100 Ranger Greats (John Wiley & Sons).
