Brian Francis O'Neill (born January 25, 1929 in Montreal, Quebec) is a former executive within the National Hockey League.

O'Neill oversaw the 1967 NHL Expansion Draft and later looked after the NHL Entry Draft until he took over as executive vice-president after Clarence Campbell stepped down in 1977. With this new position, he doled out punishment on any disciplinary cases. He would also represent the league in the international front.

After the death of Red Dutton, O'Neill became a trustee for the Stanley Cup, a position he still holds. [1]

He retired from his position with the NHL in 1992 and in 1994, O'Neill was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
