Mike York (Born 3 January 1978) is a professional ice hockey forward who currently plays for the New York Islanders and was recently named Alternate Captain. He is versatile enough to play all three forward positions, although he has mostly played on both wings.
He was born in Waterford, Michigan and played for the Michigan State University hockey team, the Spartans. He was drafted in the 6th round of the 1997 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Rangers. York was a member of the silver medal winning Team USA in the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
He was later dealt to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for defenseman Tom Poti, who had become a target of fans for his perceived indifference. At that time, York was part of the "FLY" line, composed of himself, Theoren Fleury and Eric Lindros. In Edmonton, York became an integral part of the team, playing on the top two lines and also on the penalty kill, where for a time he formed a formidable duo with Todd Marchant. In the 2004-05 season he played in Germany for the Iserlohn Roosters in the Deutsche Eishockey League. He was the second best scorer in the whole league. On August 3, 2005, York was traded from the Oilers to the New York Islanders with a conditional draft pick in exchange for Michael Peca. He is married to Aimee Cousino.
