</div></div> Michael "Mike" Commodore (born November 7, 1979 in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada) is a professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League.

Playing careerEdit

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 and winning a NCAA championship in the process, Commodore decided to leave early for the NHL. He started play during the 2001–02 NHL season.

In 2003–04, Commodore's "unruly red mop" of hair and steady defensive play in the 2004 Stanley Cup Playoffs earned him a cult following in Calgary, as many fans began sporting red afro wigs in his honor. Despite being one of the most popular players of the Flames playoff run, 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 losing a bet regarding the Hurricanes chances of defeating New Jersey in the second round of the 2006 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Canadian television personality Don Cherry appeared on his Coaches Corner intermission show wearing a Mike Commodore bathrobe. [1]

Commodore also made headlines in Canada early in the 2004–05 NHL lockout when he told a Calgary radio station that he would accept playing under a salary cap if it meant resolving the dispute. [2]. Unlike other players who made similar statements, only to retract them later, Commodore never changed his opinion.

With Carolina in the 2006 Playoff finals, Mike helped the team win their very first Stanley Cup along with fellow Fort Saskatchewan native Ray Whitney, and Sherwood Park native Cam Ward against their childhood team the Edmonton Oilers.

After the 2006 Stanley Cup playoffs, Mike had his long curly red locks shaved for organisations 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, Mike 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.
