Christopher M. Mueller (born March 6, 1986) is an American professional ice hockey forward. He is currently playing with the Syracuse Crunch in the American Hockey League (AHL) while under contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League (NHL).
In the 2010–11 season, on December 27, 2010, Mueller signed a one-year contract with the Predators from American Hockey League affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals. On December 28, 2010, Mueller made his NHL debut with the Predators in a 4–2 defeat against the Dallas Stars.
On July 7, 2011, Mueller re-signed to a one-year contract with the Predators.
On July 8, 2013 Mueller left the Predators organization after three seasons and signed a one-year contract with the Dallas Stars. On October 14, 2013, after skating in just one NHL contest with the Dallas Stars, Mueller was assigned to play with the Texas Stars of the AHL.
Mueller familiarly signed a one-year, two-way contract as a free agent with the Anaheim Ducks on July 1, 2015. In the 2015–16 season, Mueller was assigned to newly relaunched AHL affiliate, the San Diego Gulls. He continued his offensive prowess in the American League, contributing with 57 points in 63 games.
Unable to feature with the Ducks, Mueller left at the conclusion of his contract to sign as a free agent to a one-year, two-way deal with the Arizona Coyotes on July 1, 2016. Mueller played the entirety of the 2016–17 season with the Coyotes AHL affiliate, the Tucson Roadrunners, for their inaugural season. As a veteran on the club, he led the Roadrunners in scoring with 67 points in 68 games.
On the opening day of free agency, having concluded a successful tenure within the Maple Leafs organization, Mueller agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning on July 1, 2019.
