Daniel Carcillo (born January 28, 1985) is a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger who plays for the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Drafted 73rd overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins, Carcillo was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes for Georges Laraque on February 27, 2007. During the 2007–08 regular season he had a league high 324 penalty minutes. He scored his first career hat trick on April 4, 2008. He was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers on March 4, 2009 for Scottie Upshall and a 2011 2nd round draft pick. Carcillo's first goal as a Flyer came in game 4 of the first round of the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs against Pittsburgh. Along with Shawn Thornton of the Boston Bruins, Carcillo was a part of the first fight in an outdoor NHL game. He and Thornton fought in the Bridgestone 2010 NHL Winter Classic. Mentioned on the NBC broadcast, a day earlier, Carcillo told Mike Emrick and Eddie Olczyk that he would be a part of the first Winter Classic fight. On April 18, 2010, Carcillo scored the game winning goal in overtime against the New Jersey Devils, giving the Flyers a 2 games to 1 lead in the first round of the playoffs. He would also score two nights later in game 4, giving him 2 playoff goals, a new career high. He would finish the playoffs with only the previously mentioned 2 goals and just 4 assists, tripling his point total from the previous playoff year, when he had one goal (game 4) and one assist (on Arron Asham's game 6 GWG)
