Michael Joseph McPhee (born July 14, 1960 in Sydney, Nova Scotia and raised in River Bourgeois, Nova Scotia) is a retired Canadian ice hockey forward.

He began his professional career with the AHL’s Nova Scotia Voyageurs after being selected in the sixth-round (124th overall) of the 1980 NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadiens.[1]

He began his NHL career with Montreal in 1984. McPhee was a member of Montreal's Stanley Cup winning team in 1986. His best NHL season came in 1987-88, with linemates Guy Carbonneau and Russ Courtnall, when he scored 23 goals and 43 points. The following season, he took part in the only NHL All-Star Game of his career.

He was also a three-time winner of the Jacques Beauchamp Trophy as the Montreal Canadiens’ unsung hero.[2]

McPhee also played with the Minnesota North Stars and Dallas Stars before a knee injury forced him to retire following the 1993-94 season.

McPhee earned a civil engineering degree at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where he was a standout player for the Engineers before making his professional debut in 1982. After retiring from the NHL, he went back to school to complete his MBA.[3] He is currently working as a financial advisor for National Bank of Canada in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
