Marcel Gerard Pelletier (born December 6, 1927 in Drummondville, Quebec) was a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender who played eight games in the National Hockey League: six with the Chicago Black Hawks and two with the New York Rangers. He spent the majority of his career with the Victoria Cougars of the Western Hockey League.

He played junior for the Verdun Maple Leafs from 1946-48. In 1948-49 he played senior hockey for the Kitchener-Waterloo Dutchmen and in 1949-50 for the Quebec Aces.

Pelletier turned pro in 1950-51 with the Milwaukee Sea Gulls and was loaned to the Chicago Blackhawks for six games that season. After that it was back to the minors.

He played in the Western Hockey League from 1953 to 1962, mostly with the Victoria Cougars. In 1958-59 he won the WHL Leading Goaltender award.

In 1962 the New York Rangers signed him as a free agent. He got into two games with them in 1962-63 but mostly spent time in the minor pros again. He retired in 1969 while a player-coach of the Jersey Devils of the Eastern Hockey League.
