Lane Phillip MacDermid (born August 25, 1989) is an American-born Canadian retired professional ice hockey forward. He last played for the Calgary Flames in the National Hockey League (NHL). MacDermid is the son of former NHL player Paul MacDermid and was born in Hartford, Connecticut during his father's stint with the Hartford Whalers, but was raised in Sauble Beach, Ontario.[1]

Playing career[edit]

MacDermid was selected by the Boston Bruins in the 4th round (112th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. After starting his professional career with AHL affiliate, the Providence Bruins and in his fourth year with the Bruins organization, on March 3, 2012, MacDermid was recalled to Boston for the first time after an injury to Daniel Paille.[2][3]

During the shortened 2012–13 season, on April 2, 2013, MacDermid was traded by the Boston Bruins along with prospect, Cody Payne, and a conditional second round draft pick to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Jaromir Jagr.[4] In his Stars debut, he scored his first NHL goal and point in a defeat against the Anaheim Ducks on April 3, 2013.[5] His father Paul MacDermid scored his first career NHL goal 31 years ago to the day, one of two sets to do it.[6]

Developing as a fourth line grinder who finishes his checks and is willing to stick up for his teammates, MacDermid made the Dallas Stars roster to open the 2013-14 season. After only 6 games with the Stars through the first two months of the season, MacDermid was traded to the Calgary Flames for a 2014 6th round pick on November 22, 2013.[7] He was assigned to AHL affiliate, the Abbotsford Heat, before he was later recalled and made his Flames debut, fighting against Cody McLeod of the Colorado Avalanche, on December 6, 2013.[8] It was his only appearance with the Flames before he was returned to the Heat.

On February 25, 2014, MacDermid announced his retirement at age 24 shortly after being suspended from the Calgary Flames for failing to report to affiliate, the Abbotsford Heat. He cited that his decision to retire was due to no longer having the desire to play professional hockey.[9]

Family[edit]

His younger brother, Kurtis MacDermid (born March 25, 1994), plays major junior hockey with Owen Sound Attack in the Ontario Hockey League.[10]
