Josh Unice (born June 24, 1989) is an American ice hockey goaltender. He was selected by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 3rd round (86th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.[2][3] He is currently playing in Canberra for CBR Brave in the Australian Ice Hockey League after leaving the Sheffield Steelers in the EIHL.

Unice began his Major Junior Ice Hockey career playing two seasons with the USA Hockey National Team Development Program (2005–07), before playing three seasons in the Ontario Hockey League playing with both the Kitchener Rangers and Windsor Spitfires (2007–09).[2] While with the Spitfires, the team won the Ontario Hockey League Championship after the 2008-09 season.[2]

After his Major Junior Ice Hockey career ended, Unice spent his Collegiate Ice Hockey career playing for the University of Western Ontario Mustangs of Canadian Interuniversity Sport for five seasons (2009-2014).[2] While at the University of Western Ontario, Unice studied Criminology.[4]

On March 6, 2014, Unice began his Professional career by signing with the Gwinnett Gladiators of the ECHL.[1] On August 7, 2014, Unice signed with the Missouri Mavericks of the Central Hockey League.[5]

On October 7, 2014, it was announced that the Central Hockey League had folded and had joined the ECHL, nullifying Unice's Central Hockey League contract with the team.[6][7] On October 9, 2014, Unice re-signed with the Mavericks under an ECHL contract.[8] That same day, he was traded by the Mavericks to the Rapid City Rush of the ECHL for undisclosed considerations.[8][9][10]

On October 15, 2014, Unice was released by the Rush.[11]
