DESPITE SPENDING HIS CAREER IN THE SHADOWS OF HIS TEAMMTES, MIKE MCPHEE SCORED AT LEAST 15 GOALS EIGHT TIMES IN NINE SEASONS IN MONTREAL.

A strong and rugged left-winger, Mike McPhee was a solid two-way player whose contributions were best felt along the boards and in the corners. McPhee sported a bushy mustache, a look that became his signature.

A sixth-round pick,124th overall, in the 1980 entry draft,  McPhee spent two seasons with the AHL’s Nova Scotia Voyageurs, appearing in 14 games with Montreal in 1983-84 before making the jump to the Canadiens for good the following season.

His remarkable work ethic made him an important element in the 1986 Stanley Cup Championship, and in 1989, when he contributed 11 points in 20 games, helping the Habs reach the Finals.

A physical player who loved to deliver big hits, his consistency made him a favorite of Canadiens coaches Jean Perron and Pat Burns. His determination earned him three Jacques Beauchamp Trophies as the Canadiens’ unsung hero.

McPhee had a career year in 1987-88, playing alongside Guy Carbonneau and Chris Nilan, notching 23 goals and 43 points. The following season, he took part in the only NHL All-Star Game of his career.

He was traded to the Minnesota North Stars prior to 1992-93, where he rejoined general manager and head coach Bob Gainey, his former captain, as well as four other former Canadiens, including Russ Courtnall, Craig Ludwig, Brent Gilchrist and Mike Lalor.

He moved to Dallas when the franchise shifted south and spent one more season with the Stars before retiring following the 1993-94 season because of frequent knee injuries.

A gifted student, McPhee earned a civil engineering degree at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where he was a standout player for the Engineers before making his professional debut. After retiring from the NHL, he went back to school to complete his MBA.
