Michal Handzuš was drafted 101st overall in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft by the St. Louis Blues, playing with them for two and a half seasons from 1998–99 to 2000–01. He was then traded on March 13, 2001 with Ladislav Nagy, Jeff Taffe and two first-round draft picks to the Phoenix Coyotes for Keith Tkachuk. Handzuš spent two seasons with Phoenix. On June 12, 2002, Handzuš was traded with Robert Esche to the Philadelphia Flyers for Brian Boucher and a third-round draft pick. On December 5, 2002, he became only the second player in NHL history to score a penalty shot goal in overtime. In the 2003–04 season he finished second on the Flyers with 58 points. During the 2004–05 NHL lockout he played for the HKm Zvolen, which reached the playoff finals in the Slovak Extraliga. On August 4, 2006, he was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks for Kyle Calder (With whom he is currently a teammate). Only eight games into his season with Chicago, however, Handzuš suffered a torn ACL which sidelined him for what was originally projected to be the remainder of the 2006–2007 season.
On July 2, 2007, Handzuš signed with the Los Angeles Kings.
