Jonathon Gary Frank Mirasty (born June 4, 1982, Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan) is a Cree native Canadian ice hockey player who plays on the Astana Barys of the KHL.[1] Nicknamed "Nasty" by both teammates and fans, Mirasty has developed a cult following throughout his career due to his Mohawk hairstyle and his laughing during his fights.[2]

Mirasty finished the 2010-11 regular season with the Fort Wayne Komets. However, he was left off the playoff roster.[3]

As of the completion of the 2011-12 season, Mirasty has accumulated 2439 PIMs throughout his nine-year professional hockey career.

On September 1, 2012, Mirasty signed a one-year contract with the KHL team Astana Barys.


Mirasty made his professional MMA debut against Sebastian Gauthier losing in the first round. In his youth Mirasty competed in boxing and was provincial and golden gloves champion in 1998 and 1999.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

Mirasty, a Cree Indian, is a distant cousin of teammate Jeremy Yablonski.[citation needed] Mirasty is married to Janessa Mirasty and has two children, older son Tristan and younger daughter Ava. [4]

When not playing hockey, or coaching his son, Jon spends time breaking and training horses on his ranch in Meadow Lake.[4]

After playing over nine seasons professionally, Jon saw a future in business and opened up his towns first Tim Hortons within a 90 mile radius. However, four months into the operation Jon and his family were forced to sell due to personal health problems Jon was facing. [5]
