Todd Simpson (born May 28, 1973) is a retired Canadian ice hockey player, having played his final year in the NHL split between the Chicago Blackhawks and Montreal Canadiens during the 2005-06 season. Simpson went undrafted but made his debut during the 1995-96 season, playing six games for the Calgary Flames and going scoreless. The following season, he became a regular in the lineup, becoming an alternate captain and registering 208 penalty minutes in a full 82-game season. Named captain for the 1997-98 season, Simpson held the role for two seasons until he was traded to the Florida Panthers for Bill Lindsay. In Florida, he reached the playoffs for the first time in his career, but it was short-lived in a four-game sweep to the hands of the New Jersey Devils.

Over the next five seasons, Simpson had stints with the Phoenix Coyotes, Anaheim Mighty Ducks, Ottawa Senators, Chicago Blackhawks, and Montreal Canadiens. In his ten years in the NHL, he accumulated 77 points in 580 games and a total of 1,357 penalty minutes. During the lock-out 2004-05 season, Simpson played for the Herning Blue Fox in Denmark, winning the Danish Championship. His career came to an end at the conclusion of the 2006-07 season, where he played for the Hannover Scorpions in the DEL.
