Boris Petrovich Mikhailov (born October 6, 1944 in Moscow) is a former Soviet ice hockey right winger. He played for Energy Saratov from 1962–65, Locomotiv Moscow from 1965–67, and CSKA Moscow (Red Army team) from 1967-1981. He went on to be a coach in Russia (including coach of the national team) and Switzerland.

Mikhailov played right wing on the top Soviet line of the 1970s, along with left winger Valeri Kharlamov and center Vladimir Petrov. During Soviet League play, he played in 572 games, scoring a record 427 goals along with 224 assists for a record 651 points.

On the Soviet national team, he played 14 seasons, most of them as captain. He scored over 200 goals with the national team, second only to Alexander Maltsev. He led his team to the Olympic gold medal in 1972 and 1976, eight International Ice Hockey Federation World Championships (1969–71,1973–75,1978,1979), and nine Izvestija championships. Mikhailov's last game with the Soviet National team was played in front of 14,000 people at Luzhniki Ice Palace. His teammates carried him around the rink on their shoulders to a thunderous ovation.

Mikhailov was one of the very few to receive the finest order of the Soviet Union, the Order of Lenin.
