McPhee was traded to the Minnesota North Stars on August 14, 1992 in exchange for a 5th round pick (Jeff Lank) in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. While in Minnesota, McPhee was a favourite of head coach Bob Gainey, who rewarded McPhee for his two-way style, which was similar to Gainey's.

When the North Stars relocated to Dallas prior to the 1993-94 season, McPhee followed and continued to thrive while playing his defensive game. McPhee was forced to retire following the season due to a recurring knee injury.
