Alvin John Paddock (born June 9, 1954 in Oak River, Manitoba) is a former Canadian ice hockey player and the former head coach of the Winnipeg Jets and Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). He currently serves as head coach for the Philadelphia Phantoms of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Selected in the 1974 NHL Entry Draft by the Washington Capitals, Paddock only played 8 games with the Capitals before he was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers. He played a memorable role in the 1980 Stanley Cup Finals, scoring the tying goal to send game 6 of the Finals into overtime. Unfortunately for the Flyers, Bob Nystrom scored at 7:11 of overtime to win the Stanley Cup.

Throughout his career he had a difficult time trying to crack the lineup on an NHL team. Playing primarily in the minors, in particular the Maine Mariners, Paddock retired as a player in 1983–84 and moved to the coaching side.
