Mirco Müller (also spelled Mirco Mueller; born 21 March 1995) is a Swiss professional ice hockey defenceman for the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League (NHL). Müller was selected by the San Jose Sharks in the first round, 18th overall, of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
Müller was selected 11th overall by the Everett Silvertips in the 2012 Canadian Hockey League import draft. "Over the last few years, a couple Swiss players played in North America and they told me how high the playing level is there and I’ve always been interested to play in another country, so I was very happy to be picked by Everett," said Müller.
Müller was selected in the first round, 18th overall, by the San Jose Sharks in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, and on 22 September 2013, he signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Sharks, and returned to Everett. He did not play any exhibition games with the Sharks in 2013 due to an injury.
On 17 June 2017, Müller (along with a fifth-round pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft) was traded to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a second- and a fourth-round pick in the same draft. On 27 February 2019, Müller was stretchered off the ice due to an injury sustained in a New Jersey home game against the Calgary Flames.
Müller played for Switzerland in the 2013 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships in Ufa, Russia. Ahead of the tournament, Müller said, "I'm looking forward to playing against the best players in junior hockey, especially the Canadians, Americans, Swedes and the other top nations. It's in a new country that I've never been to before and I'm excited to see what it's like over there."
