John Erskine (b. June 26th 1980, in Kingston, Ontario, Canada) is a professional defenceman who plays in the National Hockey League for the Washington Capitals.

Beginning with the Ontario Hockey League's London Knights in 1997, Erskine was drafted 39th overall by the Dallas Stars in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. He would begin playing professionally with the Utah Grizzlies in 2000; he made his NHL debuts the following season.

Erskine never established himself as a regular with Dallas, who traded him in 2005-06 to the New York Islanders for Janne Niinimaa. New York did not re-sign him at the end of the season, leaving him a free agent. On September 14th 2006, he inked a deal with the Capitals.
