Max McNab Passes Away at 83

Max McNab, who won the Stanley Cup as a player with the Detroit Red Wings in 1950 and later served as the general manager of two NHL teams in a nearly 50-year hockey career, died Sunday. He was 83.

McNab suffered a massive stroke in Las Vegas on Saturday and died on Sunday, Peter McNab, his son and a former NHL player, said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.

His other son, David McNab, has been the Assistant General Manager with the Ducks since their inaugural season of 1993.

Max McNab joined the Red Wings in 1948 and as a rookie centered a line with Hall of Famers Gordie Howe and Ted Lindsay. His championship came two years later when the Red Wings won the Stanley Cup in double overtime of Game 7 against the New York Rangers.

After a back injury shortened his playing career, McNab got his first coaching job in 1952-53 with New Westminster of the WHL. He later coached in the league at San Francisco and Vancouver before becoming a coach-general manager for the San Diego Gulls.

McNab served two seasons as the president of the Central Hockey League before returning to the NHL as the general manager of the Washington Capitals from 1975-81. He joined the New Jersey Devils as vice president of hockey operations the following season and served as general manager from 1983-87. He served as executive vice president from 1987-1994, when he retired.
