Kasper Peter Schmeichel (born 5 November 1986) is a Danish professional footballer who plays for English club Leicester City as a goalkeeper. He is the son of former player Peter Schmeichel.

Schmeichel began his career with Manchester City, but he had loan spells with Darlington, Bury and Falkirk before he made his City debut. Although Schmeichel appeared to have made the City number 1 jersey his own at the start of the 2007–08 season, the emergence of Joe Hart resulted in Schmeichel being loaned to Cardiff City. The signing of Republic of Ireland international Shay Given in January 2009 meant that Schmeichel fell even further down the pecking order at City, and in August 2009, he was allowed to link up with former manager Sven-Göran Eriksson at Notts County. He spent only one season with the Magpies as, while it was a very successful one for the club and the player himself, changes to the club's financial position made his departure necessary and his contract was terminated by mutual consent. He joined Leeds United in May 2010, but again, his tenure at the club would only last one season before he was the subject of a transfer to Leicester City, where he would again work under Sven-Göran Eriksson.

He played 17 games for the Denmark national under-21 team. Schmeichel was called up to the Denmark national football team for the first time against Iceland on 13 May 2011.
