Carl David Wetzel (born December 12, 1938 in Detroit, Michigan) is a retired professional ice hockey goaltender who made 7 game appearances in the National Hockey League for the Detroit Red Wings and Minnesota North Stars between 1964 and 1968.

However, he is perhaps best known for starring for the United States ice hockey national team at the 1967 World Championship in Vienna where he was voted best goalkeeper of the tournament. He was also a member of the 1970 and 1971 US national teams.

Wetzel finished his major league career in 1973 with the WHA Minnesota Fighting Saints after spending the previous season in Austria with KAC Kitzbuhel. He would later serve as an assistant coach with the Minnesota North Stars in 1987–88.
