Philip Gogulla (born July 31, 1987, in Düsseldorf, Germany) is a German ice hockey player currently playing for the Portland Pirates of the American Hockey League.

Gogulla began his professional career with the Krefeld Pinguine at the age of 15 in 2002, although his professional league debut in the DEL came first with the Kölner Haie two years later. He has since become a regular player for the team, and also represented the Germany national ice hockey team on several occasions.

Gogulla was drafted in the second round, 48th overall, by the Buffalo Sabres in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. He signed an entry-level contact with the Buffalo Sabres on June 1 2007, to prevent him from re-entering the NHL entry draft in 2007, although there was some confusion as to whether he had signed. NHL rules state prospects must be signed before 5:00pm EDT on June 1 or the team's rights to the player expire and he is free to re-enter the draft or become a free agent. Gogulla was signed by this deadline, but the contract had to be approved by the NHL. There was a delay in the approval process meaning the deal could not be announced and so it was assumed that the management had failed to sign Gogulla in time. On June 2 2007, the deal was approved and announced as a three-year entry-level contract.

Gogulla played in Buffalo Sabres' 2009 Prospect camp held at Dwyer Arena, home of Niagara University Purple Eagles, from 6-10 July 2009. He was assigned to the Sabres' AHL affiliate, the Portland Pirates for the 2009-10 season.

Gogulla represented Germany at the 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 IIHF World Championships.
