Mike Cammalleri is a Canadian center on the Montreal Canadiens.

Cammallerri was drafted in 2001 by the Los Angeles Kings. He began his NHL career in 2002, but split time over the next three seasons between LA and their AHL team in Manchester. In 2005-06, he made the permanent roster, and finished with 55 points. The following season, he emerged as a top caliber NHL center, scoring 34 goals and 80 points. His production tailed off slightly in 2007-08, due mostly to a struggling group of teammates that finished at the bottom of the league. He was traded to Calgary in the 2008 offseason. In 81 games with the Flames during the 2008-09 season, Cammalleri had a rebound season, scoring 39 goals and 82 points, helping the Flames reach the playoffs. During the 2009 offseason, Cammalleri was one of the most sought-after forwards, and was signed to a five year contract worth $6 million a year with the Montreal Canadiens.

Cammalleri won a bronze medal at the 2001 Under-20 World Championships and a silver medal at the same tournament a year later. In 2006 and 2007, he played at the World Hockey Championships for Team Canada.
