Jean-Marc Pelletier (born March 4, 1978) is a Canadian-American former professional ice hockey goaltender who played seven National Hockey League (NHL) games over parts of three seasons for the Philadelphia Flyers and Phoenix Coyotes. Pelletier grew up in Saint-Lambert, Quebec.
Pelletier was drafted out of Cornell University by the Philadelphia Flyers in the second round of the 1997 NHL Entry Draft with the 30th overall pick. After spending the 1997–98 season with Rimouski Océanic of the QMJHL, Pelletier joined the Flyers' AHL affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms in 1998–99. He also appeared in one NHL game that season for the Flyers, a 0-5 loss against the Ottawa Senators.
Pelletier has made brief stops in the NHL in two other seasons, appearing in two games for the Phoenix Coyotes in the 2002–03 season and four more in the 2003–04 season.
At the end of November 2006, Pelletier signed a contract with Adler Mannheim of the DEL to replace Robert Müller, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor. After the season, he signed a one-year-contract with the Hamburg Freezers.
