Peter Joseph Ferraro (born January 24, 1973 in Port Jefferson, New York) is a former NHL hockey player who, along with his twin brother Chris became the second set of identical twins to play on the same NHL team, (the New York Rangers) in the 1995–1996 NHL hockey season. The first was Ron & Rich Sutter.

Professional career

Peter was the first of the twins to be drafted into the NHL in the first round (#24 overall) in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Rangers. During his NHL career, he played for the New York Rangers, the Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston Bruins and the Washington Capitals. Despite playing professional hockey for a combined thirty years, neither Ferraro managed to play over 100 NHL games. Peter has a career NHL total of 92 games played while his brother Chris played 74 NHL games.

Both brothers played for the DEG Metro Stars of the DEL in the 2005–06 season. Ferraro has signed a contract with the New York Islanders and attended the team's 2006–07 training camp. As he had previously indicated,[1] he accepted a position with the team's minor league club, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, as he failed to make the NHL team. On April 1, 2009 he was released from the team after a suspension lasting the rest of the season and the playoffs.


Ferraro currently runs a hockey camp with his brother Chris at New York Islanders Iceworks in Syosset, NY.
