Jacob Micflikier (born July 11, 1984) is a Canadian professional ice hockey Forward who is currently playing for Linköpings HC in the Swedish Hockey League (SHL).

Playing career[edit]

College hockey[edit]

After spending two years with the Sioux Falls Stampede of the USHL, Micflikier enrolled at the University of New Hampshire. The 2003–04 season was his first season of college hockey. He was named assistant captain in his senior year of 2006–07.

Micflikier is 24th in all-time scoring for the New Hampshire Wildcats, and three times was selected to receive the university's Ted Karmeris "Fan Favorite Award." As a junior, he was named UNH's Most Valuable Player, and that season led the program in scoring with 42 points (16g, 26a). He also received the Guy Smith Award for best offensive UNH player after his junior season.[1] He recorded four hat tricks in his four seasons as a Wildcat.[2]

Professional[edit]

On March 28, 2007, after completing his senior season at UNH, the Springfield Falcons, then the AHL affiliate of the Edmonton Oilers, signed Micflikier to an Amateur Tryout Agreement contract (ATO). During his nine games played under the ATO, he scored three goals and one assist.[3]

On July 25, 2007, the Falcons signed him to his first professional contract; a one-year deal.[4] Micflikier split the 2007–08 season between the Falcons and the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL.

After his 2007–08 season, Micflikier was signed to a one-year contract with the AHL's Rochester Americans. He split the following season (2008–09) between Rochester and the ECHL's Florida Everblades.

On September 10, 2009, Micflikier signed a contract with the Albany River Rats.[5] The River Rats and Americans shared an ECHL affiliate in the Florida Everblades. After signing with the River Rats, Micflikier found his time down in the ECHL with Florida dwindling. He spent 59 games with Albany, and just 16 with the Everblades. Micflikier was selected to play in the ECHL All-Star Game during the 2009–10 season.

On July 29, 2010, Micflikier was re-signed with the new franchise the Charlotte Checkers, which was formed as a result of the relocation of the Albany River Rats.[6] He spent his entire 2010–11 season in the AHL, and played 78 games with the Checkers. He ranked third on the Checkers in scoring with 61 points in the 2010–11 season.

On July 14, 2011, Micflikier signed a one-year contract with the Washington Capitals.[7] He was assigned to AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears for the duration of the 2011–12 season.

In June 2012, Micflikier signed his first contract abroad on a one-year deal with EHC Biel in the Swiss National League A.

On July 25, 2014, Micflikier continued his career overseas in agreeing to a one-year contract with SHL club, Linköpings HC.[8]
