Patrick Edward "Hopalong" Hannigan (March 5, 1936 – December 11, 2007) was a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger who played five seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) with the Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers. He later served as a television analyst for the Buffalo Sabres, where he was paired with Ted Darling.
He then turned pro with the Winnipeg Warriors in 1956-57. Despite excellent numbers in the minors, Hannigan only got into one game for the Leafs.
The 1967 NHL Expansion gave Hannigan another NHL chance. He was picked by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1967 NHL Expansion Draft. He scored 11 goals and 15 assists in 65 games for the Flyers in 1967-68. After starting the following season for Philadelphia, he was sent back to the minors (the Buffalo Bisons).
After three years in the Western Hockey League Hannigan retired in 1971.
Hannigan played in a total of 182 NHL games, scoring 30 goals and 39 assists.
