Michael R. Greenlay (born September 15, 1968 in Vitória, Brazil and raised in Calgary, Alberta) is a former National Hockey League player.

Goalie Mike Greenlay made a couple of appearances for the Edmonton Oilers in 1989–90. He was a successful amateur player who spent most of his pro career in the minors.

He was selected 189th overall by Edmonton in 1986 out of the Calgary AAA Midgets. He then played parts of three years at Lake Superior State. He was a member of the Lake Superior State Lakers 1988 NCAA Championship men's ice hockey team. Early in the 1988–89 season he left the Lakers to suit up for the WHL's Saskatoon Blades. Greenlay helped the squad reach the Memorial Cup final and was named the top goaltender at the tournament and an all-star.

Apart from his two-game stint with Edmonton, Greenlay excelled for parts of two years with the AHL's Cape Breton Oilers. He also toiled in the ECHL and IHL before retiring early in the 1995–96 season. In 1994 Greenlay shared the James Norris Memorial Trophy (IHL) with J.C. Bergeron for allowing the fewest goals in the IHL. He also led all post-season goalies in wins while helping the Atlanta Knights win the Turner Cup in 1994.

Greenlay currently serves as a color commentator for Minnesota Wild television broadcasts.
