James Michael McBain (born February 25, 1988) is an American professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL). McBain was born in Edina, Minnesota, but grew up in Faribault, Minnesota.
On May 21, 2012, the Carolina Hurricanes announced that McBain had agreed to a two-year contract extension worth $3.6 million USD, after a season in which he led all Hurricanes defencemen with 19 assists and 27 points. The contract is structured so that McBain will make $1.7 million in 2012–13 and $1.9 million in 2013–14. In the statement announcing the contract extension, GM Jim Rutherford said, “Jamie is still a very young player who has established himself as an NHL defenseman. He moves the puck well and has shown that he can contribute offensively, especially on the power play.”
During the 2012–13 NHL lockout, McBain signed a temporary contract with Finnish club, Lahti Pelicans of the SM-liiga on November 2, 2012. He participated in 7 games for the Pelicans for one assist before returning to North America for the shortened 2012–13 season.
On June 30, 2013, during the 2013 NHL Entry Draft McBain was traded to Buffalo along with Carolina's second round pick in exchange for Andrej Sekera. After one season with the Sabres, the Sabres declined to offer him a contract extension.
McBain attended the Arizona Coyotes' training camp on a player tryout offer, but was released by the team unsigned. On October 31, 2014, McBain belatedly began the 2014–15 season by agreeing to a professional try-out contract with the Manchester Monarch of the AHL. After six games with the Monarchs, McBain was signed to a one-year two-way contract with NHL affiliate, the Los Angeles Kings on November 11, 2014. McBain wears #5 on the LA Kings.
McBain married Elizabeth Milner on July 5th of 2014 in North Carolina.
