2014 30th Anniversary Reunion
McClelland was invited to the Edmonton Oilers 30th Anniversary Reunion of their 1983-84 Stanley Cup Championship, held on October 10, 2014, at Edmonton's Rexall Place but was the only absent player from the 1983-84 Stanley Cup winning team. McClelland is deathly afraid of flying, but stated he would "find a way to get [to the reunion]." He did not attend, citing a previous engagement. He recorded a segment for the ceremony, however.
