John DeCaro (born November 9, 1982 in Marysville, Washington) is a professional ice hockey goaltender in the UK EIHL with the Sheffield Steelers.

DeCaro played collegiately for one season with Ferris State, before transfering to Alaska-Anchorage, where he would play two seasons with the Seawolves.

Following his collegiate career, DeCaro was signed by the ECHL's Alaska Aces for the remainder of the 2005-06 season posting a 1-1-2 record in four starts. In 2006, DeCaro signed with the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs and became a sensation posting a 23-7-4 record and garnering an all-star game selection as well as being named the the CHL's Goalie of the Year. DeCaro would receive a call up to the AHL's Philadelphia Phantoms during the season, going 0-2-0.

DeCaro would continue his success well into the 2007-08 season posting a 27-6-3 record for Bossier-Shreveport and setting league records in shutouts (11), Goals against average (1.96), and save percentage (.941) leading to another all-star selection as well as a second straight Goaltender of the Year award. DeCaro would be signed by Wranglers head coach/GM Glen Gulutzan after hearing great recommendations by other coaches and was named the Wranglers starting goaltender for the upcoming season. DeCaro's debut for the Wranglers was cut short after he suffered an injury during the second period of the team's season opener at DeCaro's first professional squad, the Alaska Aces.
