Kevin Mitchell (born June 5, 1980) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman currently playing with the Nikko Icebucks in the Asia League Ice Hockey (AL). He was originally selected by the Calgary Flames in the 9th round (234th overall) of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft.

Mitchell played with EC VSV in the Austrian Hockey League during the 2010–11 Austrian Hockey League season.[1]

After a season with Ritten-Renon in the Italian Serie A, Mitchell left as a free agent and signed a one-year contract with Swedish club, Mora IK of the HockeyAllsvenskan on June 20, 2013.[2]

Mitchell recorded an impressive debut season from the blueline with Mora and was signed to a one-year contract extension on March 23, 2014. For the 2014–15 season, he was selected as team captain for Mora IK and responded with beating his previously scoring pace from the blueline, amassing 48 points in just 52 games.

On February 7, 2015, Mitchell signed a one-year contract to return to the familiar Austrian EBEL, in agreeing as a free agent with the Graz 99ers.[3]
