Drafted: DET / 1990 NHL Entry Draft
Round: 7th (129th overall)
Jason York played Junior "A" hockey down the highway from his native Nepean with the Smith Falls Bears before joining the OHL's Hamilton Steelhawks in 1987. His OHL career included stops in Windsor and Kitchener prior to being selected 129th overall in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft by the Detroit Red Wings.

In 1991-92, York was assigned to the Adirondack Red Wings of the AHL, appearing in 49 regular season games and five playoff games as the Wings won the Calder Cup. By 1993-94 he was an AHL First Team All-Star but he could not seem to crack the powerful Detroit lineup for more than a handful of games over the next three seasons.

York presented himself as a smart, all-around defenceman with good skating ability and hard point shot, yet it wasn't until he was traded to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in 1995 that he saw regular duty in the NHL. He spent one full season with the Ducks before he was traded to the Ottawa Senators where he blossomed into a steady, top-four defenceman with the Senators. After five seasons with Ottawa, he signed on as a free agent for his second tour of duty with Anaheim in the summer of 2001.

The Nepean, ON native spent parts of two seasons in Anaheim before joining the Nashville Predators early in the 2002-03 season. York's stint with the Predators was short lived as he would sign with HC Lugano of the Swiss league a year after the lock out year.

In the summer of 2006, York returned to North American as he was signed as a free agent by the Boston Bruins.
