John C. "Spider" Brackenborough (b. February 9, 1897 in Parry Sound, Ontario – d. July 8, 1993 in Dunedin, Florida) was a Canadian professional hockey player left winger. He played 7 games for the Boston Bruins of the NHL as well as in the NOHA, OCSL, and the OHA.

He joined the Boston Bruins during the 1925–1926 season. He only played 7 games before retiring due to an eye injury.
