Blaine Stoughton (born March 13, 1953 in Gilbert Plains, Manitoba, Canada) is a retired professional ice hockey forward who played 8 seasons in the NHL for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Toronto Maple Leafs, Hartford Whalers and New York Rangers. He also played three seasons in the WHA.

The enigmatic Stoughton had an up-and-down stint in the WHA. Often teamed with Rick Dudley and Rich Leduc on the "LSD" line, Stougton scored 52 goals for the Cincinnati Stingers in 1976–77. The next year, however, the free-wheeling Stoughton chafed under the restrictive defensive style of new coach Jacques Demers, fell into a horrendous slump and was peddled to the Indianapolis Racers by mid-season. When the Racers folded in 1978, he was signed by the New England Whalers where he labored on a third line with Mike Rogers, scoring 19 goals.

Stoughton was drafted 8th overall by the Penguins in the 1973 NHL Amateur Draft. He played his major junior career with the Flin Flon Bombers. Stoughton scored at least 50 goals in a season in the NHL twice, and scored at least 40 goals four times. Blaine is currently the head coach of the University of Cincinnati hockey team.
