Paul Lufkin (born 1942) is a retired American ice hockey player and coach. He was the head coach of Yale for a short time before Tim Taylor took over.[2]

Paul Lufkin played for Boston College in the early 1960s, playing under John Kelley and making the 1963 NCAA Tournament. Lufkin's brief stint with Yale began with a rare winning season for the Bulldogs but declined sharply into a 1-win season in his third year there and he was gone soon thereafter.
