John Scott Thomas (born January 18, 1970 in Buffalo, New York) is a retired professional ice hockey right wing. He was drafted in the third round, 56th overall, by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft.

Thomas played 39 games with the Sabres over two seasons, 1992–93 and 1993–94. He returned to the National Hockey League late in his career, appearing in 24 games with the Los Angeles Kings in 2000–01. In between, he spent several seasons playing in the International Hockey League. He finished his career as a member of the American Hockey League's Cleveland Barons in the 2002–03 season.

Thomas scored the first goal of the "Stunner at Staples" play-off game in which Los Angeles rallied to beat the Detroit Red Wings after being down three to nothing with 6:07 remaining in the game.

Thomas and Peter Ciavaglia had been the only two Buffalo-area residents to play for the Buffalo Sabres until Patrick Kaleta made his debut as a Sabre during the 2006–07 season.

He played in 63 NHL games and scored 6 goals and 4 assists.
