Bradley Wayne Selwood (born March 18, 1948 in Leamington, Ontario) is the former General Manager and head coach of the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League.

Selwood played junior ice hockey for the 1968 Memorial Cup champion Niagara Falls Flyers before a professional career. He played two seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs, but shortly after was lured by the New England Whalers of the fledgling World Hockey Association. Selwood played 431 games in the WHA with the Whalers, the third highest total in the team's history.[1]

Selwood also played in the 1974 Summit Series for Team Canada against the Soviet Union. When the WHA merged with the NHL, he was claimed by the Montreal Canadiens, who still held his rights and who shortly thereafter traded him to the Los Angeles Kings. He played one season for the Kings and a few more seasons in the minors before retiring. He has served as a coach and executive for much of his retirement, notably with the Generals, Thornhill Islanders, London Knights, and Newmarket Hurricanes.

Selwood is now serving as President of the Markham Islanders of the GTHL.[2]
