Daniel Armand "Dan" Daoust (born February 29, 1960 in Montreal, Quebec) is a retired Canadian ice hockey forward. All but 4 of his 522 career National Hockey League (NHL) games were spent as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Daoust began his NHL career with the Montreal Canadiens in 1982 after three successful junior seasons playing with the Cornwall Royals, where he scored over 40 goals twice, while recording 103 points in his final season in 1979-80. Montreal, believing he was too small to succeed at the NHL level, failed to give him much of an opportunity, and he was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs on December 17, 1982. Daoust was an immediate success in Toronto, scoring 51 points in 48 games in his first season there. Daoust relied on grit and hard work to compensate for his small stature, and became a fan favorite in Toronto in the 1980s.
