Guy Chouinard (born October 20, 1956, in Quebec City, Quebec) was a professional hockey player for the Atlanta Flames and later the St. Louis Blues. He was the 28th overall pick in the 1974 Entry Draft, following a succesful junior career with the Quebec Remparts. He was one of the first underage players available in the entry draft because of the National Hockey League's decision to allow drafting of underage players that year. While playing with the Atlanta Flames, he set records for scoring goals in six consecutive games from November 14 to November 24, 1978; he was the first Flame to score 50 goals in a season in the 1978-79 season. He joined the team when it relocated to Calgary at the start of the 1980-81 season. He left the Atlanta/Calgary franchise as the franchise's all-time leader in points (529) and assists (336) (records since broken) on September 6, 1983, when he was traded to the St. Louis Blues. He was nicknamed "Gramps" because he appeared much older than he really was. He comes from a long line of hockey playing family members; he is the older brother of former minor-leaguer Jean Chouinard and the father of Eric Chouinard, who currently plays for the Minnesota Wild, as does his nephew Marc Chouinard.
