Mickey Richard Roach (May 1, 1895 – April 1, 1977) was an American professional ice hockey player who played 8 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Toronto St. Pats, Hamilton Tigers and New York Americans. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts.

He played in Boston and New York City in the United States Amateur Hockey Association from 1914 to 1918. The next season he led the Ontario Hockey Association senior league in scoring as his Hamilton Tigers won the Allan Cup.

That got the National Hockey League's attention, and he was signed by the Toronto St. Pats in 1919. The Hamilton Tigers acquired him in the next season, and he played for them until the franchise was suspended in 1925. He then went with most of the team to the New York Americans. Roach played there until 1927.

Roach then moved to the minor pros where he played until his retirement in 1930. He was the coach of the Buffalo Bisons in 1930-31 and of the Syracuse Stars in 1933-34.

In the NHL Roach scored 77 goals and 34 assists in 211 games. He never played in an NHL playoff game.
