Harry York (born April 16, 1974 in Ponoka, Alberta) is a retired professional ice hockey Centre who spent four seasons in the National Hockey League.

Playing careerEdit

Never drafted by an NHL team, York was the Alberta Junior Hockey League MVP and leading scorer in 1994–95 while playing for the Fort McMurray Oil Barons, and caught on with the Nashville Knights of the ECHL the following season. An 83-point campaign for Nashville finally caught the eye of NHL scouts, and he was signed by the St. Louis Blues just before the end of the 1995–96 season, adding 8 goals in 13 games for the Blues' farm team in Worcester.

York would make the Blues' NHL roster in 1996–97 as a complete unknown and surprise everyone by flying out of the gates as one of the NHL's leading rookie scorers. At one point he scored goals in 5 consecutive games and he was named the NHL's Rookie of the Month in November. Although he slowed down somewhat later in the season, he still finished with a solid 14 goals and 32 points on the season, good for 9th on the Blues in scoring.

York would return to the Blues in 1997–98, but struggled to find the scoring touch he showed as a rookie. After scoring just 4 goals and 10 points in 58 games, York was dealt to the New York Rangers late in the season. York's stay in New York would be brief, as he was dealt to the Pittsburgh Penguins early in the 1998–99 season after only 7 games for the Rangers and without scoring a point. Likewise, Pittsburgh would waive him after only two weeks and two games as a Penguin, and he was claimed by the Vancouver Canucks.

In Vancouver, York was reunited with head coach Mike Keenan, under whom he'd had his greatest success in St. Louis. York returned to form in Vancouver, posting 7 goals and 16 points in 49 games and establishing himself as a solid defensive forward and penalty killer.

In 1999–00, York recorded 4 goals and 17 points in 54 games for the Canucks. However, his role had diminished under new coach Marc Crawford and, also struggling with concussion problems, he was released by the team at the end of the year effectively ending his NHL career.

York finished his career with 29 goals and 75 points in 244 NHL games, along with 99 penalty minutes.
