Patrick McNally (born December 4, 1991) is an American ice hockey player who is currently playing for the Harvard Crimson in the ECAC. He was selected by the Vancouver Canucks in the fourth round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

High school[edit]

McNally entered Milton Academy as a junior, and soon became known as one of the most explosive players in high school hockey. In 2009–10, McNally was named U.S. Hockey Report Prep Defenseman of the Year and helped to guide Milton to their first playoff berth in the school's history.[1] McNally was named an assistant captain for the 2010–11 season.

McNally was selected by the Indiana Ice in the USHL 2010 entry draft, yet decided to remain at Milton Academy for his senior season.[2] He was drafted by the Vancouver Canucks in the fourth round of the NHL draft, 115th overall; he was Vancouver's first selection in the draft.

In his senior season at Milton, McNally led the team to a 26–3–1 record and an NEPSAC championship. McNally was named team MVP for the second year in a row, and was named the Hockey Night in Boston New England Prep Player of the Year, U.S. Hockey Report Prep Player of the Year and U.S. Hockey Report Prep Defenseman of the Year.[1] McNally also led all NEPSAC defensemen in scoring with 51 points.[3]

College career[edit]

McNally committed to Harvard University in the spring of 2010.[4]

As a freshman, McNally held a scoring line of 5-17-22 in NCAA contests. He was named as a finalist for ECAC Rookie of the Year.[5]

He left the team in 2012 and did not compete in the 2012-2013 season due to his involvement in the 2012 Harvard cheating scandal. He may return for the 2013-2014 season.[6]
