Paul Robert Ysebaert (born May 15, 1966 in Sarnia, Ontario) is a former professional player. During his fourteen year playing career in the National Hockey League, Ysebaert played left wing for the New Jersey Devils, Detroit Red Wings, Winnipeg Jets, Chicago Blackhawks, and Tampa Bay Lightning. Ysebaert accumulated a total of 336 points in 532 games during his career.

Ysebaert was one of the more popular players in Detroit during the early 1990s after arriving in a trade from the New Jersey Devils. Earning the nickname "Rocket Man" from the fans, he enjoyed his best season in 1991–1992, with 35 goals and 40 assists. The same year he became the first Red Wing to win the NHL Plus/Minus Award. Ysebaert was dealt to the Winnipeg Jets before the 1993–1994 season for former University of Michigan defenceman Aaron Ward.
