Mike Bloski (born August 1, 1962) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey goaltender.

Bloski played major junior hockey hockey in the Western Hockey League before beginning his professional career in 1983 with the Mohawk Valley Stars of the Atlantic Coast Hockey League (ACHL).

Bloski began the 1985-86 season with the Kalamazoo Wings of the International Hockey League (IHL), who were at that time affiliated with the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League (NHL). On November 12, 1985, following the tragic death of Philadelphia Flyers' goaltender Pelle Lindbergh, Bloski was recalled from the IHL to join the Flyers.[1] Bloski served three games in the National Hockey League as back-up to Darren Jensen, but did not play,[2] and the Flyer's reassigned him to join the New York Slapshots of the ACHL for the remainder of the season.[3]

Bloski retired following the 1985–86 season.
