Philippe Bozon (b. November 30th 1966 in Chamonix, France) is a former professional left winger who played in the National Hockey League for the St. Louis Blues.

A QMJHL alumni, Bozon made history in 1991-92 when he became the first French player to reach and play in the NHL. That season, he played 9 games for the Blues, scoring once and adding three assists. He played for the Blues the next two seasons, and one game of the 1994-95 season before returning for good to Europe.

One of the best French hockey players ever, Bozon was a key element of the French National Team for 12 years, taking part in the 1988, 1992, 1998 and 2002 Olympics and in 10 World Championships.

He was inducted into the IIHF Hall of Fame in 2008.[1] On July 14, 2009, Bozon was named the head coach of the French national junior ice hockey team.[2]
