Peter "Pete" Stemkowski (August 25 1943 in Winnipeg, Manitoba) - is a former player in the National Hockey League. Over fifteen seasons, he played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings, New York Rangers, and Los Angeles Kings.

After playing just over two full seasons with his hometown junior Winnipeg Monarchs (1960-62), Stemkowski transferred to the Toronto Marlboros. He helped them win the Memorial Cup in 1963-64.

He turned pro the next season, but the Toronto Maple Leafs coach Punch Imlach was not a fan of young players. Stemkowski split the next two seasons between the Leafs and their farm team Rochester Americans. He became a full time Leaf in 1966-67 and helped thyem win the Stanley Cup that year.

In 1967-68 Stemkowski was traded to the Detroit Red Wings in the Frank Mahovlich trade. He enjoyed two good seasons with the Wings before they traded him to the New York Rangers in 1970-71.

Stemkowski is best remembered for his heroics in the 1970–71 Stanley Cup semifinals when he scored two overtime goals for the Rangers in an eventual series loss to the Chicago Black Hawks.

He played seven good seasons for the Rangers and then signed with the Los Angeles Kings in 1977 as a free agent. After one season with the Kings, he retired.

Since then, Stemkowski has done media work in hockey.
