Mike Wong was born January 14, 1955 in Minneapolis, Minnesota of Chinese and Indian decent. The 7th choice, 77th overall, of the Detroit Red Wings in the 1975 Amateur Draft, Wong was a former Golden Gloves boxing champion and member of the 1974 U.S. National team at the World Junior Championships.

Wong joined the Montreal Jr. Canadiens of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League for the 1974-75 season where in his only season with the Jr. Canadiens recorded 27 goals and 41 assists for 67 points.

He made his NHL debut with Detroit during the 1975-76 season. Playing in only 22 games with the Wings, Wong managed to score his first career goal while spending the majority of the season with the Kalamazoo Wings of the International Hockey League, recording 42 points in 39 games.

The 1976-77 season saw Wong split his time between Kalamazoo and the Road Island Reds of the American Hockey League before returning to Kalamazoo for the 1977-78 season. Although he returned to Kalamazoo in 1977-78, Wong played in only a handful of games before joining the Muskegon Mokawks for the remainder of the season.
