Daniel George Belisle (born May 9, 1937 in South Porcupine, Ontario) is a former Canadian ice hockey player and coach. After his junior hockey career with the Guelph Biltmores, he was signed by the New York Rangers, but his entire National Hockey League career would only last four games during the 1960–61 NHL season. He would play for the next ten years in the minor leagues, retiring after the 1970–71 season.

Belisle began his coaching career a few years later, and in 1978, he was named head coach of the Washington Capitals, where he coached the team to a 24–41–15 record. After a slow start at the beginning of the 1979–80 NHL season he was fired and replaced by Gary Green. Belisle would later become an assistant coach with the Detroit Red Wings during the early to mid-80's.
