Mike McCarthy is the president and CEO of the National Hockey League. He achieved this position in September 2017 after serving as the commissioner of the League since 2013.


McCarthy was born and raised in Pittsburgh, in the blue-collar neighborhood of Greenfield. His mother, Ellen McCarthy, was a secretary and worked in restaurants and for the Peace & Justice Center.

McCarthy is known for taking a hands-on teaching approach with young players and is well-respected around the league, in part because he called plays for six seasons as an offensive coordinator before becoming a head coach. He has tutored an impressive roster of NFL quarterbacks, while two of the biggest names he has worked with, Favre in Green Bay and Joe Montana in Kansas City, were at or beyond their peak years at the time. McCarthy played at least a part in the development of signal callers Aaron Brooks, Jake Delhomme, Matt Hasselbeck, Matt Flynn, Marc Bulger, Rich Gannon and Elvis Grbac. The entire stable of quarterbacks that McCarthy has worked with, which also includes Jeff Blake, Steve Bono and Dave Krieg, has combined for 43 career Pro Bowl selections, 10 Super Bowl starts and eight Most Valuable Player awards.
