Nick Beverley (born on April 21, 1947, in Toronto, Ontario) is a former hockey player in the NHL and former head coach in the NHL and AHL. He played for the Boston Bruins, Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, Minnesota North Stars, and Colorado Rockies. His NHL career totals are 18 goals, 94 assists for 112 points in 501 games played.

Following his playing career, he became assistant coach of the Los Angeles Kings in 1981. He later became head coach of the New Haven Nighthawks of the AHL. Beverley spent a total of 14 years with the Kings holding a variety of positions including scout, assistant coach, head coach of minor affiliate, director of player personnel, assistant general manager and general manager. While in the position of General Manager he led the Kings to their first Stanley Cup finals. After leaving the Kings, Beverley worked for the Toronto Maple Leafs as drector of pro scouting, director of player personnel and as interim head coach when Pat Burns was released. As interim head coach, the Maple Leafs went 9–6–2. They made the playoffs, but lost in 6 games to the St. Louis Blues.

Following his time with the Leafs, Beverley joined his friend Mike Smith as assistant general manager of the Chicago Black Hawks. Following a big shakeup of the Blackhawks management, Beverley found himself unemployed with few prospects for jobs due to the looming work stoppage in 2004/2005. In July 2005 Beverley was signed as a scout for the Nashville Predators.
