Michael Paul Johnson (born October 3, 1974) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey right winger who played in the NHL with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Tampa Bay Lightning, Phoenix Coyotes, Montreal Canadiens and the St. Louis Blues.

Playing and Coaching Career[edit]

Undrafted, Johnson was signed right out of college upon the completion of his senior year with Bowling Green State University by the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 16, 1997. Mike made his professional debut with the Leafs within days finishing out the 1996-97 season. The following year in the 1997–98 season, Johnson was named in the NHL All-Rookie team after compiling an impressive 47 points. Johnson exceeded his rookie points total in two campaigns with the Phoenix Coyotes.

On October 4, 2007, he signed a one-year contract with the St. Louis Blues.[1] Mike played in 21 games with the Blues before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury.

Unable to sign with another NHL team, Johnson signed with Kölner Haie of the German DEL for the 2008–09 season, joining up with former teammate Todd Warriner.[2]

Johnson was an analyst for the NHL Network and TSN. He previously served as color commentator for the Winnipeg Jets, a role he has assumed since the beginning of the 2011 season. Since Rogers Media won the NHL rights, he moved to Sportsnet to work on national games.
