Pēteris "Peter" Skudra (born April 24, 1973) is a retired Latvian professional ice hockey goaltender. He played in the National Hockey League (NHL) for six seasons with the Buffalo Sabres, the Boston Bruins, the Pittsburgh Penguins, and the Vancouver Canucks. Originally signed as a free agent by Pittsburgh in 1997, Skudra went on to play 74 games with the Penguins over three years. After the 1999–2000 season, he was signed by the Boston Bruins. After playing for the Bruins in 2000–01 season he was signed by the Vancouver Canucks as a backup to Dan Cloutier.

In 2003, Skudra left North America for the Russian League. He has played for AK Bars Kazan and Khimik Voskresensk and CSKA Moscow. He announced his retirement in 2007 after 13 years pro.
