Peter Joseph Ferraro (born January 24, 1973) is an American former professional ice hockey forward who played in the National Hockey League (NHL). He and his twin brother Chris became the second set of identical twins to play on the same NHL team, (the New York Rangers) in the 1995–1996 NHL hockey season. The first was Ron and Rich Sutter.
Ferraro was born in Port Jefferson, New York. As a youth, he and his brother Chris played in the 1985, 1986 and 1987 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournaments with the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers minor ice hockey teams.
During his NHL career, he played for the New York Rangers, the Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston Bruins and the Washington Capitals. Despite playing professional hockey for a combined thirty years, neither Ferraro managed to play over 100 NHL games. Peter has a career NHL total of 92 games played while his brother Chris played 74 NHL games.
Both brothers played for the DEG Metro Stars of the DEL in the 2005–06 season. Ferraro has signed a contract with the New York Islanders and attended the team's 2006–07 training camp. As he had previously indicated, he accepted a position with the team's minor league club, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, as he failed to make the NHL team. On March 27, 2009, the Las Vegas Wranglers announced that Ferraro had been suspended for the remainder of the regular season and playoffs due to Ferraro spearing another player after an on-ice brawl. During that same brawl, his brother Chris had suffered a broken leg, which also ended his season and career. On April 1, 2009 he was released from the Las Vegas Wranglers.
Ferraro currently runs Ferraro Brothers Elite Hockey with his brother Chris at Newbridge Ice Arena in Bellmore, NY. He was a finalist for the 2012 Portland Pirates Hall Of Fame.
