Norman "Dutch" Gainor (April 10, 1904 in Calgary, Alberta – January 16, 1962) was a Canadian ice hockey forward, most notable for playing on the Dynamite Line with Cooney Weiland and Dit Clapper, the first "named" forward line in NHL history.

Gainor started his National Hockey League career with the Boston Bruins. He would also play for the Ottawa Senators, New York Rangers and Montreal Maroons.

He played with the senior Bellevue Bulldogs in 1923-24. Gainor then turned pro with the minor pro Duluth Hornets and the Calgary Tigers.

His career started in 1927 with the Bruins. Gainor was one of the better left wingers in the league of that era, winning the Stanley Cup in 1928-29. He was traded to the New York Rangers in 1931 and his career took a down turn. Most of his time was now spent in the minors. Gainor did resurface in 1934-35 to win another Stanley Cup with the Montreal Maroons. He retired in 1937.

Gainor played in 246 NHL games, scoring 51 goals and 56 assists.
