Bruce Driver (born April 29, 1962 in Toronto, Ontario) is a former professional defenceman who played 15 seasons in the National Hockey League from 1983–84 until 1997–98. Driver possessed a strong point shot, heady offensive instincts, smart positional defensive play, and a good stick with which he was adept at poke checking. A natural leader, Driver served as Devils' Captain and also became a power play quarterback as his career blossomed, registering many of his goals and points with the man advantage. He won the 1995 Stanley Cup as a member of the Devils, before moving on to the New York Rangers the following season.

Driver was drafted in the 6th round (108th overall) by the then Colorado Rockies in the 1981 NHL Entry Draft.
