Lorne Molleken (born June 11, 1956 in Regina, Saskatchewan) is a former Canadian ice hockey player and coach. Molleken was head coach of the Chicago Blackhawks at the end of the 1999 and the beginning of the 2000 season. He was nominally demoted to an assistant under Bob Pulford in December 1999, but Pulford allowed Molleken to continue making most of the on-ice decisions while serving largely as a senior consultant.

McPhee received thirty days' suspension and a fine from the league.
