Playing careerEdit

McCarthy was drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks with the twenty-third pick in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. He made his debut in the 1999–2000 NHL season and he recorded an assist on his first shift. After playing 134 games with the Blackhawks, he was traded to the Vancouver Canucks on August 22, 2005 in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He was then traded to the Atlanta Thrashers by the Canucks for a conditional fourth-round pick. on March 9, 2006[1]

In the 2008-09 season, McCarthy left the NHL and signed a one-year contract with Russian team Salavat Yulaev Ufa of the newly formed Kontinental Hockey League. McCarthy struggled to adapt to the European transition and went scoreless in just 18 games with Ufa.

On July 10, 2009, McCarthy returned to the North America when he was signed by the Anaheim Ducks on a one-year contract.[2] However, on September 24, before ever playing a game with the Ducks prior to the 2009-10 season McCarthy was traded back to Atlanta, for future considerations.[3]

On October 1, 2010, McCarthy, went back to Europe, signing with TPS, whose squad had been decimated by injuries in defence. He played 32 games in his only season for the team.

McCarthy signed with the ZSC Lions on October 16, 2011.[4]

International playEdit
