James Michael McBain (born February 25, 1988) is an American professional ice hockey defenceman. He is currently a free agent.

Playing career[edit]

With the Hurricanes

McBain was drafted 63rd overall in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Carolina Hurricanes. On March 26, 2009, McBain signed a three-year, $1.8-million entry-level contract with the Hurricanes.[1]

He scored his first NHL goal on March 20, 2010, with one second remaining in overtime against Marc-André Fleury of the Pittsburgh Penguins.[2]

Upon the start of the 2010–11 season, McBain began wearing the #4 jersey instead of the #28, which he had previously worn during the 2009–10 season.

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.[3] 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.”[4]

During the 2012–13 NHL lockout, McBain signed a temporary contract with Finnish club, Lahti Pelicans of the SM-liiga on November 2, 2012.[5] 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.[6] After one season with the Sabres, the Sabres declined to offer him a contract extension.[7]
