Jacques Leonard Lemieux (born April 8, 1943 in Matane, Quebec) is a professional player who played for the Los Angeles Kings in the National Hockey League.

He played senior hockey for the Noranda Alouettes from 1963 to 1965 and then turned pro in the Montreal Canadiens' system. He played in the minor pros until the Los Angeles Kings claimed him in the 1967 NHL Expansion Draft.

The Kings brought him up to the NHL for 16 games in 1967-68 but Lemieux was not able to crack the expansion team's starting lineup. He was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in February, 1970 and was suspended for refusing to report to theie farm team in Phoenix. Lemieux then retired.

In his NHL career he played in 19 games and scored 4 assists.
