Gerard Gallant (born September 2, 1963) is a Canadian ice hockey coach and former NHL player. He is the head coach for the Florida Panthers and a former assistant coach to the Montreal Canadiens.

He scored 211 goals in 615 games as a leftwinger for the Red Wings and Tampa Bay Lightning. He also scored 18 playoff goals.

Despite his smaller stature (5 ft 10 in, 180 lbs), Gallant was known as a power forward during his time with the Red Wings. He was a team leader, and served as an alternate captain alongside Bob Probert, Rick Zombo, or Steve Chiasson. During the late 1980s, Gallant was a fixture on the Red Wings top line alongside Steve Yzerman.

Gallant was named to the NHL All Star Second Team for the 1988–89 NHL season.

He was the head coach of the National Hockey League's Columbus Blue Jackets before being fired on November 13, 2006.

Gallant was an assistant coach for the New York Islanders during the 2007–08 season.

On April 24, 2009, Gallant was named head coach of the Saint John Sea Dogs of the QMJHL. During his three seasons in Saint John, he led the team to three first-place finishes, three league final appearances, two QMJHL championships and one Memorial Cup. In three years, he was named the Canadian Hockey League Coach of the Year twice, in 2010, then again in 2011. On June 15, 2012, Gallant was appointed as an assistant head coach with the Canadiens.[1]

He has also served as an assistant coach in 1998-99 for the Fort Wayne Komets of the then IHL.

On June 21, 2014, he was named head coach of the Florida Panthers.[2]
