Peterborough’s Ken McRae (former NHLer / former head coach of The Petes) was in St John’s with the Toronto Maple Leafs over the weekend.
Ken also works with us here at The Wolf, FRESH Radio and Global Peterborough.
Ken (born in Winchester, Ontario) played his junior hockey with the Sudbury Wolves and Hamilton Steelhawks in the mid 80’s. The Quebec Nordiques drafted him in the first round of the 1986 NHL Entry Draft, and he appeared in his first NHL game with the team in the 1987–88 season. He went onto play in 126 with the Nordiques before being traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1992
McRae only played 11 games with Toronto from 1992–94,(he spent most of his time in the American Hockey League with the St. John’s Maple Leafs.
He spent the remainder of his career in the AHL and the International Hockey League.
In the end he played 137 NHL games, scoring 14 goals and 21 assists for 35 points, and 364 penalty minutes.
Here’s the reason for some of those penalty minutes. Go get’em Ken!
