Kim Michael Hirschovits-Gerz (born May 9, 1982) is a Finnish professional ice hockey forward. He is currently playing for the Espoo United in Finnish second tier. Hirschovits was drafted by the New York Rangers as their sixth-round pick, 194th overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
Hirschovits started his playing career with HIFK in the 2000–01 season, but his career took off in the 2005–06 season when he scored 40 points. Hirschovits then created controversy by signing with HIFK's local rival Jokerit following in the footsteps of coach Doug Shedden. Hirschovits's career includes a brief visit to North America in 2002, when he played six games with the Chicago Steel of the USHL.
In September 2006 he was the SM-liiga Player of the Month, in 2008-2009 he led the SM-liiga in assists (48) and points (Veli-Pekka Ketola Trophy; 66) and in January 2009 was SM-liiga Player of the Month, and in 2014-2015 he won the SM-liiga Best Player of Regular Season (Lasse Oksanen Award), the SM-liiga Golden Helmet, led the SM-liiga in assists (45), led the SM-liiga in points (Veli-Pekka Ketola Trophy; 58), and in February 2015 was SM-liiga Player of the Month.
