Pierre Pagé (born June 17, 1948 in St. Hermas, Quebec, Canada) is a former head coach in the National Hockey League. Page has coached the Minnesota North Stars, Quebec Nordiques, Calgary Flames and Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. His career record was 253 wins, 301 loses and 82 ties. He is a current head coach of EC Red Bull Salzburg in Erste Bank Hockey League. He will be remembered for his verabal attack during the Quebec Nordiques's final loss in game six to the Montreal Canadiens. The scene was captured by Canadian national television (CBC) and marked the end of his successful reign as the Nordiques head coach and general manager.

Other highlights;

- He was the general manager that traded Eric Lindros for Peter Forsberg, Ron Hextall, Steve Duchesne, Mike Ricci, Chris Simon, Kerry Huffman, 15 million dollars and many first round draft pick's from the Philadelphia Flyers. This transaction was crucial in securing the Nordiques future making them a contender after many years without success on the ice.

- He had a feud with Montréal Canadiens coach Jacques Demers in 1994 over their distinct management styles, Demers even claiming that if he had coached the Nordiques in Page's years, would have won the cup easily. The two ended their feud by shaking hands on a local television show which aired on the 31st of December that same year.
