Jonathan Sim (born September 29, 1977) is a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger who is currently a member of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. He was drafted by the Dallas Stars in the third round (70th overall) of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft.

As a veteran journeyman of the National Hockey League, Sim moved to play his first full professional season in Europe in 2011–12. After an unsuccessful stint in the Czech Extraliga, Sim was signed by Eisbären Berlin of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga, where he helped contribute to the team's 6th league championship.[1]

On his return to North America and the 2012–13 NHL lockout negating his chance of a NHL contract, Sim was signed to a professional try-out deal with the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL on December 7, 2012.[2] Over the course of his try-out, Sim contributed with 13 points in 22 games, before opting not to renew with the Rampage to be mutually released on January 28, 2013.[3] On January 31, 2013, Sim was signed to a professional try-out deal with the Adirondack Phantoms of the AHL.[4] On November 4, 2013, Sim signed a professional tryout with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
