Mike McHugh (born August 16 1965, Bowdoin, Maine) is a former National Hockey League left wing. He was drafted by the Minnesota North Stars with the first pick in the 1988 NHL Supplemental Draft.

After playing four seasons at the University of Maine, McHugh made his professional debut with the American Hockey League's Maine Mariners, appearing in one game at the end of the 1987–88 season. His first full season of professional hockey was 1988–89, during which he played in 70 games with the International Hockey League's Kalamazoo Wings and three NHL games with the North Stars.

After two more seasons spent mostly with Kalamazoo, with a few appearances with the North Stars, McHugh joined the expansion San Jose Sharks in the 1991 NHL Dispersal Draft. He appeared in eight games with the Sharks during their inaugural season of 1991–92, and tallied his first and only NHL goal as a Shark. This was his last NHL experience.

Though his NHL career was brief, McHugh became a star in the American Hockey League. In seven AHL seasons with the Springfield Indians and Hershey Bears, he scored 143 goals and added 239 assists. He was awarded the Jack A. Butterfield Trophy as MVP of the 1997 Calder Cup playoffs, as he scored nine goals and seven assists while leading Hershey to the AHL Championship.

In his brief NHL career, McHugh appeared in 20 games. His one goal scored in 1991–92 was his lone NHL point.
