Michael Craig (born June 6, 1971 in London, Ontario, Canada) is a professional hockey player. He currently plays right wing for the EC KAC in the Austrian Hockey League.

CareerEdit

Craig was born in London, but he grew up in nearby Thorndale, Ontario.

Craig had a strong career in the OHL where he played for the Oshawa Generals for three seasons alongside Eric Lindros. After an unspectacular rookie season, he posted excellent numbers, scoring 72 points in 63 games in the 1988/1989 season. His best Junior season was in 1989/1990 when he scored 76 points in 43 and won the Memorial Cup with the Generals. He would also win back to back gold medals playing for Team Canada at the World Junior Ice Hockey Championships in 1990 and 1991 and was named a first team all-star in 1991.

He was drafted 28th overall in the second round of the 1989 NHL Entry Draft by the Minnesota North Stars.

His NHL career would prove to be less than spectacular, scoring 71 goals and 168 points in 423 games over 9 seasons. He would play with the North Stars and was a part of the team when they moved to Dallas. He also played with the Toronto Maple Leafs and San Jose Sharks while also spending time with several IHL and AHL teams.

In 2002, Craig was part of the Canadian team that won the Spengler Cup over host team HC Davos. Craig would score the game winning goal in the final game of round robin play.

Whilst playing with the Vienna Capitals in the Austrian Hockey League, he led the league in scoring in 2004–05 and leading the Capitals to the championship.

In 2007–08 he joined EC KAC also in the Austrian Hockey League.
