Masi Marjamäki (born January 16, 1985 in Pori, Finland) is a Finnish ice hockey player who currently plays for Ilves Tampere of the SM-liiga.

Marjamäki, a 6'2" 205 pound left wing, was originally drafted by the Boston Bruins as the 66th overall pick in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. However, he never came to terms with the Bruins and re-entered the draft in 2005, where he was the 144th overall pick by the New York Islanders.

He played his junior hockey first in his hometown Porin Ässät before moving over the ocean to the Red Deer Rebels and the Moose Jaw Warriors of the WHL before becoming professional in the 2005–2006 season.

After totaling 31 points (9 goals and 22 assists) along with 77 penalty minutes in 75 games for Bridgeport (the Islanders' top affiliate) in the 2005–2006 season, Marjamäki was called up by the big club and made his NHL debut on April 18, 2006 against the Philadelphia Flyers, logging 5 minutes and 17 seconds of icetime.

Marjamäki is known for his gritty, physical style of play but is also a good stickhandler who can put points on the board. He has received comparisons to Kirk Maltby of the NHL's Detroit Red Wings.

After a frustrating start to the 2007-2008 AHL season in which Marjamäki was scratched every game, he asked the Islanders to be re-assigned to Finland. The Islanders granted his request and he spent the season playing for Ässät Pori.

Marjamäki signed a one-year contract to play for Ilves in 2008-2009. He played for them in the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons.
