Encyclopedia > Al MacNeil

Al MacNeil (b. November 17, 1935 in Sydney, Nova Scotia) played parts of eleven seasons as a rugged defenseman with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, Chicago Black Hawks, New York Rangers and Pittsburg Penguins. Upon retiring as a player Al turned to coaching, where he won three Calder Cup Championships in six years with the American Hockey League Nova Scotia Voyageurs. In 1971 Al was a mid season replacement as Head Coach for the National Hockey League Montreal Canadiens and guided the team a Stanley Cup championship. During the '71 playoffs, he got into several incidents with Henri Richard, Henri was a highly admired and respected player on the team, so MacNeil stepped down as coach, but stayed within the Canadiens organization. In 1979, he took over the Atlanta Flames, just before the team moved to Calgary. He would last three seasons as head coach of the Calgary Flames before moving into a number of management related capacities within the Flames organization.
