Peter "Pete" Backor (April 29, 1919 in Fort William, Ontario – June 30, 1988) was a professional ice hockey defenceman who played briefly for the Toronto Maple Leafs in the NHL.


Although he played just a single season in the NHL, Backor made it count as he helped the Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup in 1945. After that season he spent the next 11 years playing in the minor leagues for the Pittsburgh Hornets of the AHL with whom he won the Calder Cup in 1952, the Hollywood Wolves of the PCHL and the Sault Ste. Marie Indians of the NOHL. Backor retired from hockey in 1956.

He also played for various senior teams, including the Fort William Forts, St. Catharines Saints, and Port Arthur Shipbuilders.
