Mick Vukota (born September 14, 1966 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) is a former NHL Right Wing.

Undrafted, he signed with the New York Islanders, who were looking to add toughness and muscle to their roster, on March 2, 1987. Vukota worked his way up the system and found himself skating on NHL ice by the end of the 1987–88 season, and he even scored his first goal. But more importantly, he registered 82 penalty minutes in 17 games on the way to becoming his team's top enforcer.

Over the next decade, Vukota forged a reputation as a tough scrapper and punishing forechecker who could occasionally pop in a goal. He was suspended several times by the league for on ice behavior, and this added to his growing tough guy reputation. He went on to become the Islander career penalty minutes leader (1,879 PIM), but his one dimensional style resulted in a demotion to the Utah Grizzlies of the IHL in 1996–97. He split the 1997–98 season between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Montreal Canadiens in what would be his last year in the NHL, surpassing 2,000 career penalty minutes, and then played 2 more seasons with the Grizzlies in the IHL before retiring.
