Thomas Draper (born November 20, 1966, in Outremont, Quebec, Canada) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender. He was chosen in the eighth round, 165th overall, by the Winnipeg Jets in the 1985 NHL Entry Draft.

Draper played collegiately at the University of Vermont and, after college, played one season in Finland with Tappara of the SM-liiga. He made his North American professional debut with the AHL's Moncton Hawks in the 1988–89 season, and also appeared in two NHL games with the Winnipeg Jets that same season.

In his NHL career, Draper played with the Jets, Buffalo Sabres, and New York Islanders. He also spent several seasons in both the AHL and the IHL. In the 1998–99 AHL season, with the Rochester Americans, Draper shared the Hap Holmes Memorial Award (lowest team goals against average) with teammate Martin Biron.

Draper returned to Finland in the 1999–2000 season and spent three-plus seasons there before returning to the United States to play in the ECHL and the United Hockey League.

He is currently the goaltending coach for the Binghamton Junior Senators.
