Richard Park ( ) (born May 27, 1976 in Seoulmarker, South Koreamarker) is an Americanmarker professional ice hockey player and an alternate captain, currently of the New York Islanders of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career

Park moved to Southern California near Los Angelesmarker with his family at the age of three. After 10 years in the United Statesmarker, at the age of thirteen, he moved to Ontariomarker, Canadamarker, where he played minor hockey in the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL). He eventually worked his way up to the Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) and played for Belleville from 1992–93 to 1995–96.

He was drafted into the NHL following his second OHL season by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round, 50th overall, of the 1994 NHL Entry Draft. He made his NHL debut when he played one regular season game and three playoff games for the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1994-95. Park became only the second Korean-born person to play in the NHL after Jim Paek. Coincidentally, both of them were drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Park played most of the next season, 1995–96, in the NHL totaling 56 games. Those 56 games would be the most he would play in the NHL until the 2001–02 when he joined the Minnesota Wild as he spent the next few years bouncing around the minors and different NHL teams. During that time, he played for the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim and Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL and various IHL and AHL teams.

He spent three seasons in Minnesota from 2001–02 to 2003–04 where he achieved career highs in games played (81), goals scored (14), assists earned (15), and points totaled (25). During the Wild's cinderella run in the 2003 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Park scored the winning goal in overtime in Game 6 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals against the Colorado Avalanche. After the lockout during the 2004–05 NHL season, Park left Minnesota and signed a one-year contract as a free agent with the Vancouver Canucks for US$750,000. At the end of his contract with Vancouver, he signed a two-year deal with the New York Islanders.

On March 29, 2008, Park was named the recipient of the Bob Nystrom Award, awarded annually to the Islander "who best exemplifies leadership, hustle and dedication."
