Todd Andrew Krygier (born October 12, 1965 in Chicago Heights, Illinois) is a former American ice hockey player.

After playing for the University of Connecticut, Krygier was selected by the Hartford Whalers in the 1988 NHL Supplemental Draft. He played parts of two seasons with the Whalers before being traded to the Washington Capitals in 1991. In 1994 he was traded to the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.

Krygier played a season and a half in Anaheim before he was re-acquired by the Capitals during the 1995–96 NHL season. It was during his second tour with the Capitals that he would make the most of his opportunity as his gritty style of play would help guide the Capitals to their first ever appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals in 1998. Krygier played two seasons with the Orlando Solar Bears of the International Hockey League before retiring from active play.

Perhaps Krygier's most memorable goal came in the 1998 Eastern Conference Finals as a member of the Capitals versus the visiting Buffalo Sabres. In overtime of Game 2, Krygier one-timed a pass from teammate Andrei Nikolishin past Sabres goalie Dominik Hasek to win the game and tie the series at one game apiece. The goal was controversial because it looked like the Capitals had iced the puck and a Sabre had touched it behind the goal line, but play was not whistled down. The Capitals went on to win the series in 6 games before being swept by the Detroit Red Wings in the Stanley Cup Finals. He is currently the head coach of the Compuware AAA mite hockey team. He is also the head hockey coach at Novi High School.

In 543 NHL games, Krygier scored 100 goals and 143 assists.
