Michael McCann OAM (born 26 September 1977) is a field hockey striker from Sydney, Australia, who won the gold medal with the Australia national field hockey team at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens.[1] He was included in the national squad for the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in 2001 after an impressive national league season netted him the top goal scorer's award.[2]

He retired from international hockey in 2007 after playing 165 games and scoring 72 goals.[3]

His nickname in the younger days was "10 cents". This came about because every time he scored a goal his aunty would give him 10 cents as a reward. After at least 3 games of hockey on a weekend, the rewards were massive.
