Jason Simon (born March 21, 1969) is a Canadian retired former professional ice hockey player. Simon played five games in the National Hockey League for the Phoenix Coyotes and New York Islanders.

Career[edit]

Simon was recalled by the New York Islanders on January 6, 1994[1] and made his NHL debut with the New York Islanders on January 7, 1994. He shared his debut with forwards Dan Plante, Ziggy Palffy, and goaltender Jamie McLennan. Missing from Simon's debut and tenure with the team was Islanders' coach Al Arbour, who was serving a five-game suspension due to Islanders' forward Mick Vukota leaving the bench and participating in an on-ice brawl that occurred during the Islanders' previous game played on January 4, 1994.[2]

The following season, Simon signed with the Winnipeg Jets and played several exhibition games with the team. Simon was involved in a kneeing incident on September 18, 1995, where he was kneed by Bryan Marchment. Marchment would later receive a five-game suspension without pay due to the incident.[3]

In addition to his four-game tenure with the Islanders, Simon would later be recalled to the NHL one more time. He was recalled by the Phoenix (now Arizona) Coyotes on October 30, 1997, playing one game with the team before being returned to Las Vegas the following day.[4]

The following season, Simon was signed by the Colorado Avalanche on August 20, 1997[5] and briefly attended their training camp.[6] While in training camp, Simon fought enforcer Wade Belak and Wade's brother Graham Belak.[7]

Simon would go on to play for thirty-one teams in his twenty-year career before retiring from hockey in 2009.[8]
