He was drafted 32nd overall by the Coyotes in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He is currently an assistant coach with the University of Waterloo men's hockey team.
MacLean grew up in the small town of Port Elgin, Ontario playing minor hockey for his hometown Port Elgin and the Grey-Bruce Highlanders AAA of the OMHA. After leading his Highlanders to an OHL Cup Semi-Final appearance in 2004, MacLean was drafted in the 1st round (11th overall) of the 2004 OHL Draft by the Erie Otters.
MacLean was drafted 32nd overall, in the 2nd round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Phoenix Coyotes. Brett was drafted from the Ontario Hockey League, where he played with the Erie Otters and the Oshawa Generals.
On October 5, 2011, Maclean was placed on waivers by the Phoenix Coyotes, and was claimed by the Winnipeg Jets. On October 28, 2011, MacLean was again waived, and reclaimed by the Coyotes; he was then assigned to the Coyotes' new AHL affiliate team, the Portland Pirates.
On July 2, 2012, Maclean suffered a cardiac emergency while playing hockey with friends in Owen Sound, Ontario. He was revived using cardiopulmonary resuscitation and a defibrillator. He subsequently had a defibrillator implanted, and was forced to retire from hockey. MacLean is actively campaigning for CPR awareness with the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
