David Poile (born February 14, 1950 in Toronto, Ontario) is the Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations and General Manager of the NHL's Nashville Predators.

Poile began his career in the NHL as an Administrative Assistant with the then expansion Atlanta Flames in 1972 shortly after graduating from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. At Northeastern, Poile was a successful hockey player, and still holds the record for most career hat tricks with 11. Five years after joining the Flames organization he was named as the assistant general manager.

Poile left the Flames to become the Vice President and General Manager of the Washington Capitals. He served in that capacity for fifteen years. During his time in Washington he was quite successful and the Capitals amassed a 594-454-124 record under his control.
