Todd Fedoruk (born February 13, 1979 in Redwater, Alberta) is a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger who has signed with the Phoenix Coyotes as an unrestricted free agent.

Todd Fedoruk spent his first seven professional seasons in the Philadelphia Flyers organization after being drafted 164th overall by the Flyers in 1997. He made his NHL debut during the 2000–01 season and played in 220 games over four seasons with the club, recording at least 100 penalty minutes in each season. He played with the Philadelphia Phantoms during the 2004–05 NHL lockout and took part in that team's run to the Calder Cup championship. Shortly after the lockout came to an end, Fedoruk was traded to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim for a 2005 second round draft pick (which turned into Pierre-Olivier Pelletier) on July 29, 2005. The 2005–06 season saw Fedoruk post career highs in games played (76), assists (19), points (23), and penalty minutes (174) as a member of the Ducks. The Flyers re-acquired Fedoruk on November 13, 2006 for a fourth round draft pick.

Fedoruk, who is known for his skills as an enforcer, had titanium plates permanently embedded into his face to repair injuries caused to him in a fight with Minnesota Wild enforcer Derek Boogaard during the 2006–07 NHL season. Later in the season, on March 21, 2007, Fedoruk was once again injured in a fight against New York Rangers enforcer, Colton Orr. Fedoruk was knocked out unconscious and had to be carried off the ice on a stretcher.
