Milan Michálek (Czech pronunciation: ; anglicised as /mɪˈkælɛk/; born December 7, 1984) is a Czech professional ice hockey player currently playing left wing for the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted sixth overall by the San Jose Sharks in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. His older brother Zbyněk is a defenseman who plays for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Michálek scored a goal in his first NHL game before suffering a serious knee injury the next game on October 11, 2004, tearing his right ACL. After knee surgery, Michálek played in the American Hockey League (AHL) before injuring his knee again on January 22. During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Michálek did not play anywhere, spending the time rehabilitating his knee.

Michálek played his first full season with the Sharks in 2005–06, scoring 17 goals and 35 points and earning the San Jose Sharks PlayStation Rookie of the Year award. In the 2006–07 season, Michálek emerged as a speedy, multidimensional player and an offensive threat, scoring 26 goals and 66 points. During the following offseason, Michálek signed a six-year, $26 million contract extension through 2014 while still having one year left on his original rookie contract. It was the longest and most lucrative contract ever signed by a Sharks player. In 2007–08, Michálek played primarily on the Sharks' top line with Joe Thornton. Michálek's production dipped to 24 goals and 55 points, but due to the Sharks' overall offensive struggles, he was still second on the team to Thornton in goals and points.
