Mulvey once held the record for being the youngest player since expansion in 1967 to score an NHL goal, scoring his first goal at the age of 18 years, 32 days. On October 3, 2013, Alexander Barkov, Jr. surpassed this feat by one day, scoring against the Dallas Stars at the age of 18 years, 31 days.

On February 3, 1982 in a game against the St. Louis Blues, Mulvey scored five goals and added two assists for seven points, setting a franchise record for most goals in a game. In the same game, he tied the record (shared with eleven others) for most goals in single period (4).

Grant has made his home in Chicago while dedicating time to his family, business and the Chicago Blackhawk Alumni Association. He is currently an active board member and Treasurer for the Blackhawk Alumni Association. As with many former athletes in Chicago, Grant values the opportunity to give back to the community by supporting many great charities.

Mulvey has worked for Toppan Merrill since 1997 where he is a Senior Vice President of Sales. Grant is the brother of Paul Mulvey.
