Grant "Granny" Mulvey (born September 17, 1956 in Sudbury, Ontario and raised in Merritt, British Columbia) is a retired professional ice hockey player who played all but twelve games of his 586-game NHL career with the Chicago Black Hawks. A long line of injuries forced Mulvey to retire from the NHL.

Mulvey once held the record for being the youngest player since expansion in 1967 to score an NHL goal, scoring his first goal at the age of 18 years, 32 days. On October 3, 2013, Alexander Barkov, Jr. surpassed this feat by one day, scoring against the Dallas Stars at the age of 18 years, 31 days.

On February 3, 1982 in a game against the St. Louis Blues, Mulvey scored five goals and added two assists for seven points, setting a franchise record for most goals in a game. In the same game, he tied the record (shared with eleven others) for most goals in single period (4).

Grant has made his home in a Chicago suburb while dedicating time to his family, business, Chicago Blackhawk Alumni Association, LINK Unlimited and Ronald McDonald Children’s Hospital at Loyola University Medical Center. He is currently an active board member and Treasurer for the Blackhawk Alumni Association and Loyola’s Children’s Committee. Grant, as with many former athletes in Chicago values the opportunity to give back to the community by supporting many great charities.

Mulvey has worked for Merrill Corporation since 1997 where he is a Vice President of Sales.
