DAVID MCNAB

Senior Vice President of Hockey Operations
Anaheim Ducks Hockey Club, LLC

An original member of the Ducks, David McNab is now in his 37th consecutive year in the NHL and 22nd with Anaheim. McNab served as Anaheim’s Assistant General Manager for 14 seasons before being promoted to his current position in 2008. His duties include overseeing all aspects of player development, having an expertise on the new Collective Bargaining Agreement and its relationship to the salary cap in the NHL, contract and arbitration negotiation, player evaluation and scouting.

McNab’s impact on the Ducks is significant. He has been part of Anaheim’s run to two Stanley Cup Finals (2003 & 2007), including a championship in 2007. The club advanced to the Conference Finals in 2006 and the Conference Semifinals in 2009. In recent years, McNab has scouted and signed numerous collegiate free agents who have made major contributions to the success of the club.

Prior to being named as the Ducks’ Assistant General Manager in December of 1995, the 58-year-old McNab was the club’s first Director of Player Personnel and was largely responsible for the team’s selections in the 1994-96 NHL Entry and Supplemental Drafts. McNab has also held the position as General Manager of the Ducks’ top farm team in the American Hockey League for six seasons (the Baltimore Bandits during the 1996-97 season and the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks from 1997-2002) while also working on the AHL’s competition committee for many of those years.

Considered to be one of the hardest working and knowledgeable scouts in the National Hockey League, McNab began his professional scouting career in 1978 with the Washington Capitals, where he spent four seasons. In 1982, McNab was signed by the Hartford Whalers, where he spent seven seasons as a scout, the last two as the Director of Player Recruitment. He then joined the New York Rangers in 1989, where he worked for four seasons before leaving to join the Disney-owned Ducks in 1993. His work with the Rangers helped the club to the 1994 Stanley Cup championship.   

A graduate of the University of Wisconsin in 1978 with a degree in Communication Arts, McNab was also a goaltender on one of the greatest college hockey teams of all-time, the 1977 University of Wisconsin Badgers’ NCAA championship team. He was drafted by the St. Louis Blues in the ninth round of the 1975 NHL Entry Draft (151st overall). McNab has worked on numerous occasions for USA Hockey, both as an Assistant General Manager for the United States in the World Championships on three different occasions, as well as serving as a consultant for the 1984, 1988 and 1992 United States Olympic Teams. He has also been a three-time member of the selection committee that votes for the Hobey Baker Award, college hockey’s version of the Heisman Trophy.

A member of one of the most respected families in the NHL, McNab is the son of the late Max McNab and brother of Peter McNab. Max played on the 1950 Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings and was a former general manager with the Washington Capitals and New Jersey Devils. He was also a recipient of the 1998 Lester Patrick Award given annually for “outstanding service to hockey in the United States.” Peter played in 954 NHL games, scoring 363 goals and 813 points in a 14-year career. Peter is currently a broadcaster with the Colorado Avalanche.  

David McNab was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, but grew up in San Diego, California and graduated from Point Loma High School in San Diego in 1973. He became a U.S. citizen in 1983. He and his wife, Kari, were married in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1989 and have two daughters, Ali (23) and Erica (22). The McNab family resides in Yorba Linda, California.
