Terry Crisp (born May 28, 1943 in Parry Sound, Ontario) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey centre who played 10 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Boston Bruins, St. Louis Blues, New York Islanders and Philadelphia Flyers and who coached for 11 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Philadelphia Flyers, Calgary Flames and Tampa Bay Lightning.

Playing career

Crisp began in the Boston Bruins organization, playing one season for them before being chosen by the St. Louis Blues in the 1967 Expansion Draft. With the Blues, he went to the Finals three straight seasons. In 1972, he was again chosen in the Expansion Draft, this time by the New York Islanders. Late in the 1972–73 season, he was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers for Jean Potvin. It is believed the trade was made because the Islanders, who would have the first overall pick in the upcoming draft, intended to draft Denis Potvin, and believed having his older brother on the team would intice him to sign with the Isles instead of going to the rival World Hockey Association.

Crisp played on the notorious Philadelphia Flyers teams of the 1970s when they were also known as the Broadstreet Bullies. He won two Stanley Cups as a member of the Flyers in 1973–74 and 1974–75. He retired in 1976 to become the Flyers assistant coach under Fred Shero.
