Todd Harvey (born February 17, 1975 in Hamilton, Ontario) is a former professional ice hockey forward. He was selected in the first round of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft, 9th overall, by the Dallas Stars, following a successful junior career, which included being the captain of the Canadian team at the World Junior Hockey Championships.
Although a first round selection, Harvey was never able to live up to the offensive expectations that accompanied his draft position. His intense style of hockey and smallish frame lead to numerous injuries, and after three seasons in Dallas, and a brief stint with the New York Rangers, Harvey was dealt to the San Jose Sharks, where he played a key role as a checking forward and an agitator. In his fifth season with the Sharks, Harvey was sent to the minors, and allowed to leave as a free agent.
Harvey was part of the Edmonton Oiler team that made a run to the Stanley Cup Finals. However, the Oilers lost in game 7 of the finals to the Carolina Hurricanes. Harvey had 1 goal and 1 assist in the 2006 Playoffs. After that amazing cup run, Harvey was bought out for the rest of his contract along with backup goaltender Ty Conklin. Unlike Conklin, Harvey was unable to find a new team in the off-season.
In February 2007, Harvey joined the senior Dundas Real McCoys for one game.
Harvey played in 671 NHL games and scored 91 goals and 132 assists.
