Nathan McIver (born January 6, 1985 in Summerside, Prince Edward Island) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman for the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League (AHL). He played major junior in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) where he was drafted 254th overall by the Vancouver Canucks in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. McIver has played in the National Hockey League (NHL) with the Canucks and has also played in a brief stint with the Anaheim Ducks.

Playing career[edit]

Selected in the second round of the OHL Priority Draft, McIver played three seasons for the Toronto St. Michael's Majors establishing himself as a stay-at-home defenceman. In his third and final season with Toronto, he recorded 26 points and appeared on the OHL's Third All-Star Team.

Drafted in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, 254th overall, by the Vancouver Canucks, he made his professional debut in the AHL in 2005–06 with the Manitoba Moose. During his AHL season, McIver made his NHL debut with the Canucks, called up in lieu of injury trouble.[1] With more injuries on the Canucks' blueline in 2007–08, McIver appeared increasingly for Vancouver, playing in 17 games.

During the 2008–09 preseason, McIver was assigned to the Moose. However, required to clear waivers, McIver instead was claimed by the Anaheim Ducks.[2] Making his Ducks debut on October 14, 2008, he recorded his first NHL point, an assist in a game against the Los Angeles Kings.[3] He went on to play 18 games for the Ducks, before being traded back to the Canucks in exchange for right winger Mike Brown on February 4, 2009.[4] Back in the Canucks organization, McIver returned to the Moose to finish the season. Becoming a free agent in the off-season, he was re-signed by the Canucks to a one-year, two-way contract worth $577,000 at the NHL level and $95,000 in the minors.[5]

On July 3, 2010, McIver left the Canucks and signed a two-year contract as a free agent with the Boston Bruins organization.[6]

With limited NHL interest, he accepted a try-out to the Hamilton Bulldogs training camp for the 2013–14 season. On December 13, 2013, McIver signed an AHL contract to remain with the Bulldogs for the remainder of the campaign.[7]
