Jocelyn Thibault (born January 12, 1975 in Montreal, Quebec) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender who has played 14 seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Quebec Nordiques, Colorado Avalanche, Montreal Canadiens, Chicago Blackhawks, Pittsburgh Penguins and Buffalo Sabres. He is currently an unrestricted free agent.

He was drafted by the Quebec Nordiques 10th overall in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. He became just the second 18-year old to play in the modern-era NHL on a regular basis. He went on to play for the Nordiques, continuing for a short time after they moved to Denver and became the Colorado Avalanche. In 1995, midway through the Avalanche's first season in Denver, he was traded to the Montreal Canadiens in the trade that moved Patrick Roy to the Avalanche. Thibault played two seasons with the Canadiens before being traded to the Chicago Blackhawks in November 1998.

Thibault played his longest stretch with any one team with the Blackhawks - five seasons. His best season was the 2002–03 season when he recorded eight shutouts and made an appearance in the 2003 NHL All-Star Game. He recorded his career best GAA of 2.37 and a save percentage of .915.
