|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
At one time, Mulvey was a solid player for the Blackhawks, best known as a creator of space in front of the net, either
for himself to knock it in or for his linemates to do that. He knew how to use his size well.
Towards the end of his stint with the 'Hawks, injuries started to mount, and that would continue when the Devils had
him, which is why he only played 12 games in New Jersey, plus 29 games for the Maine Mariners.
So the Devils released him after the season was over, and Mulvey decided to retire.
Fast forward about 10 years. A new Chicago franchise was to be established in the old IHL, and he was the man behind
the movement, having been part of that plan since he retired. Once established, he was named the team's first ever
president, GM, and alternate governor. He would also be the man responsible for naming the team. So now you know
the story behind the Chicago Wolves.
He would coach the Wolves in 96-97, but had no experience in coaching and ended up alienating his players. The owner
of the Wolves had later admitted that Mulvey should not have been named the coach. He would be let go from all of his
duties that March.
Currently, and since getting out of hockey, he has worked for Merrill Corp. He also sits as the treasurer of the
Blackhawks Alumni Association.
