Mike Vellucci (born August 11, 1966 in Farmington, Michigan, United States) is a retired professional ice hockey player and the current head coach and general manager of the Plymouth Whalers in the Ontario Hockey League.

He spent most of his playing career in the minor leagues, however, Vellucci appeared in two games with the Hartford Whalers in the NHL. He coached the Plymouth Whalers from 2001-08, winning the Matt Leyden Trophy as OHL Coach of the Year in 2007, the same season he led the Whalers to the J. Ross Robertson Cup and a berth in the 2007 Memorial Cup. Vellucci stepped down as head coach of the Whalers in December of 2007, as he wanted more time to concentrate on his general manager duties, and he was replaced by Greg Stefan. Stefan coached the club until November of 2008, when he resigned to take a job with the Carolina Hurricanes of the NHL, and Vellucci took over the coaching reigns once again.
