Michael Commodore (born November 7, 1979) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career

Commodore was drafted 42nd overall by the New Jersey Devils in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. After completing three collegiate seasons for the University of North Dakota, Calgary's depth on the blue line left no place for Commodore in the regular lineup, and he was traded to Carolina prior to the start of the 2005–06 NHL season. In Carolina, Commodore has retained his popularity, adding a white bathrobe as part of his trademark.

After the 2006 Stanley Cup playoffs, Mike had his long curly red locks shaved for organizations which help Jimmy V Foundation cancer research. The first time he had his hair shaved was at his mother's former school, Fort High. The second time, Mike held ten eBay auctions for the highest bidders which would allow them to have a chance to shave his head and keep his hair.

Along with Rhett Warrener, he played a role in Paul Brandt's music video, "Convoy", as a truck driver.

He was a member of the 2007 Canadian IIHF World Championship team that won gold in a 4–2 win against Finland in Moscow.

On February 11, 2008, Commodore was dealt to the Ottawa Senators along with Cory Stillman from Carolina for Joe Corvo and Patrick Eaves.

Commodore was signed as an unrestricted free agent by the Columbus Blue Jackets on July 1, 2008 to a five year contract worth $18.75 million. He scored five goals as well as adding 15 assists during his first season in Columbus that saw the Blue Jackets appear in their first ever Stanley Cup Playoff series against the Detroit Red Wings, who won in a sweep. Commodore recorded 18 penalty minutes during the series.
