Jeff Gorton is a former interim general manager of the Boston Bruins. He was hired on March 25, 2006. On July 15, 2006, he was succeeded by Peter Chiarelli. He was dismissed, along with scout Daniel Dore, on June 27, 2007.

The one transaction Gorton will likely be remembered for is the trade that sent goaltender Andrew Raycroft to the Toronto Maple Leafs at the 2006 NHL Entry Draft for goalie prospect Tuukka Rask. [1] Raycroft was coming off a subpar season and his two-year stint in Toronto would prove disastrous, with the Leafs buying him out of the final year of his contract. [2] Rask, meanwhile, had been selected in the first round of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft by Toronto and now is arguably the most promising goalie prospect in hockey. [3]
