Michael "Mike" Amadio (born May 13, 1996) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre currently playing for the Ontario Reign in the American Hockey League (AHL) as a prospect to the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL). Amadio was selected by the Kings, 90th overall, in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
Amadio was a prolific scorer playing in Northern Ontario's bantam and midget levels, before he was selected by the Brampton Battalion, 36th overall in the 2012 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection. He played two seasons with the Battalion, through their relocation to North Bay, before he was selected with the last pick in the third-round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft by the Los Angeles Kings.
During the 2015–16 season, Amadio scored a franchise record of 50 goals and was nominated for the Red Tilson Trophy and William Hanley Trophy. Amadio was named the winner of the William Hanley Trophy on April 22, 2016, and was later selected for the OHL Second All-Star Team.
On March 13, 2016, Amadio was signed by the Kings to a three-year, entry-level contract. He was then reassigned to join AHL affiliate, the Ontario Reign for their playoff run following the 2015–16 season. In 11 post-season games he contributed with 1 goal and 5 points.
After beginning the 2017–18 season with the Reign, Amadio received his first recall to the Kings on October 26, 2017. He made his NHL debut that night in a 4–0 shutout victory over the Montreal Canadiens. In his fourth game, Amadio registered his first NHL goal, scoring in a 5–3 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on November 2, 2017.
After attending the Kings training camp, Amadio was named to their NHL roster to begin the 2018–19 season. After playing in 28 games, Amadio was reassigned to the Ontario Reign. Despite recalls throughout the season, he was again assigned to the Ontario Reign after the Kings failed to clinch a post season berth.
