Richard Allen "R. J." Umberger, Jr. (born May 3, 1982) is an American professional ice hockey center and an alternate captain of the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Umberger, who plays both left wing and center, played his high school hockey in the PIHL for the Plum Mustangs. In his sophomore year and final season, he accumulated 116 points in just 26 games. He capped off his season by scoring the game winning goal in double overtime in front of a packed house at the Harmarville Bladerunners to win the Penguins Cup. His efforts were recognized in 2006 when the Mustangs raised his number to the rafters of the Center Ice Arena in Delmont. He was called up to the Flyers roster in the 2005–06 NHL season.

Umberger is the second Western Pennsylvanian born hockey player to play in the NHL, along with Ryan Malone of the Tampa Bay Lightning. He scored his first career NHL goal on November 22, 2005 for the Flyers against the Lightning. Umberger began his career with the USA National Team Developmental Program after a successful developmental career with the Pittsburgh Hornets. On July 6, 2006, the Flyers announced that they had signed him to a two year contract.
