Ivan Majeský (born September 2, 1976) is a Slovak ice hockey defenceman currently with Linköpings HC in the Swedish top elite league Elitserien.
Majeský was drafted by the Florida Panthers 267th overall in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft and played a full season with the Panthers scoring 4 goals and 8 assists for 12 points. On June 21, 2003, Majeský was traded to the Atlanta Thrashers for a Round 2 pick (Kamil Kreps), where he scored 3 goals and 7 assists for 10 points in 63 regular season games for Atlanta. During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, which resulted in the cancellation of the 2004–05 NHL season, Majeský played in the Czech Republic for HC Sparta Praha before joining the Washington Capitals. It's with the Capitals where Majeský is famous with North American fans for his only goal for the team, a 170–foot shot from his own end that somehow managed to bounce past Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Sébastien Caron. Before his NHL career began, Majeský played in Finland for Ilves.
On September 22, 2006, Linköpings HC announced that Majeský signed a contract lasting season 2006–07 with the Swedish club. Until mid-October he played for Kärpät in the Finnish SM-liiga before coming to Sweden.
On July 3, 2009, Majeský signed with Skellefteå AIK on loan.
In December 2011, Majeský re-signed with Linköpings HC.
