Peter "Pete" Babando (born May 10, 1925 in Braeburn, Lower Burrell, Pennsylvania and raised in Ontario) is a former National Hockey League player who skated for the Boston Bruins, Detroit Red Wings, Chicago Black Hawks, and New York Rangers. During six NHL seasons, Babando scored 86 goals, 73 assists (for 159 points) in 351 regular season games. However, Babando's mark in history was made on April 23, 1950 in Game seven of the Stanley Cup Finals. As a member of the Red Wings, he scored a sudden death (and Cup-clinching goal) to eliminate the Rangers at 8:31 of the second overtime. At the time he was one of the few American-born players in the NHL. Babando scored only three playoff goals in his career.

Babando was also a key member of the legendary Clinton Comets of the Eastern Hockey League.

He currently lives in South Porcupine, Ontario.
