RIP: Peter McNab

RIP: Peter McNab
07 Nov
Not in Hall of Fame

One of the great players in Bruins history passed away with the death of Peter McNab, who lost his battle with cancer.  He was 70 years old.

A late round pick by the Buffalo Sabres in 1972, McNabb had his best years with the Boston Bruins, where he was an All-Star in 1977.  Finishing in the top ten in Goals twice, McNab had 813 Points over his career, which also stops in Vancouver and New Jersey.

Although McNab was born in British Columbia, McNab would later represent the United States, most notably in the 1986 World Hockey Championship.  

Following his retirement in 1987, he went into broadcasting, most notably with the Colorado Avalanche where he was an analyst from their inaugural season in 1995 until his death.  McNab was enshrined into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame last year, but due to his illness, he was unable to attend.

We here at would like to extend our condolences to the fans, friends and family of Peter McNab
