Torrey C. Mitchell (born January 30, 1985 in Greenfield Park, Quebec) is a Canadian ice hockey centre for the San Jose Sharks of the National Hockey League. He was drafted by the Sharks in the 4th round of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft (#126 overall).

Mitchell graduated from Selwyn House School and The Hotchkiss School before he attended the University of Vermont. During his Junior year at UVM he served as co-captain of the Catamounts. After the Catamounts 2006–2007 season, Mitchell left the school and played in the American Hockey League for the Worcester Sharks. On March 31, 2007 Mitchell scored his first AHL goal against the Houston Aeros, in the second period. The final score was Sharks 7 Aeros 3.

In the summer of 2007 Mitchell attended the San Jose Sharks training camp, and on October 4, 2007, he played his first NHL game against the Edmonton Oilers. He scored his first NHL goal on November 9, 2007, against Jean-Sébastien Giguère of the Anaheim Ducks. During that season, Mitchell spent most of his time playing on the third line with Patrick Rissmiller and Mike Grier, becoming a penalty-killing specialist with the Sharks. Mitchell also became a favorite among the fans when he scored a memorable goal in a game against Sharks rival, the Anaheim Ducks. The Sharks were killing a penalty, and Mitchell was able to grab the puck on a breakaway and score on Giguere while Mathieu Schneider was hooking from behind and even forced Mitchell to fall on the ice before Mitchell got up and scored the goal, then Chris Pronger tried taking him down also with a hook also but to no success. That goal was arguably the goal of the season for the Sharks. Mitchell scored his first career NHL playoff goal on April 10, 2008, during the second game of the first round series that Sharks played against Calgary Flames, assisted by Ryane Clowe and Craig Rivet.
