Woodrow Wilson Clarence Dumart (December 23, 1916 – October 19, 2001) was a Canadian professional ice hockey player, most notably for the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League. He is an Honoured Member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. Dumart’s uncle Ezra Dumart was also a professional ice hockey player.

Along with Milt Schmidt and Bobby Bauer, the trio comprised “The Kraut Line” and become one of the most famous lines in hockey history. Dumart, at 6-foot-1, was one of the largest wingers of his day, and was the skilled checking and defensive component to the line, while contributing good scoring, and helped lead the Bruins to Stanley Cup victories in 1939 and 1941. His contributions were recognized by being named the left wing on the Second All-Star Team in both 1939–40 and 1940–41.
