Jocelyn Marcel Guevremont (born March 1, 1951 in Montreal, Quebec) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who played nine season in the National Hockey League (NHL). He is an NHL All-Star.

He began his career as a distinguished junior ice hockey player, named to the Ontario Hockey Association (OHA) Second and First All-Star Teams in consecutive years and was awarded the Max Kaminsky Trophy in 1971 as the most outstanding defenceman in the OHA. He also won the 1969 and 1970 Memorial Cup. Drafted in the first round, third overall by the Vancouver Canucks in the 1971 NHL Amateur Draft, Guevremont spent parts of his nine-year NHL career with the Canucks, the Buffalo Sabres, and the New York Rangers.

Playing career

In his NHL career he played for the Vancouver Canucks, Buffalo Sabres, and New York Rangers and retired in 1980 due to chronic shoulder problems. He was also a member of Team Canada at the 1972 Summit Series. As a Buffalo Sabre he was often the only defenceman on the powerplay due to their depth at right wing, which pushed Rene Robert back to the other point while Danny Gare lined up on the wing along with Gilbert Perreault and Rick Martin. Although he was not a big goal scorer his hard slap shot resulted in many tip goals on the power play. At full strength he often was paired with Bill Hajt.
