Mark McNeill (born February 22, 1993) is a Canadian ice hockey forward currently playing for the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League (AHL) while under contract to the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected 18th overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks, and he was also selected by Vityaz Chekhov in the fifth round (112th overall) of the 2011 KHL Junior Draft.[1]

Early life[edit]

McNeill played with major junior hockey with the Prince Albert Raiders of the WHL. Mark has two older siblings, Megan and David, and parents Bernie and Pamela, who reside in Edmonton.

Playing career[edit]

During the 2016–17 season, while with the AHL affiliate the Rockford IceHogs, and unable to make the Blackhawks roster after four full seasons within the organization, McNeill was traded along with a conditional fourth-round pick to the Dallas Stars in exchange for the return of Johnny Oduya on February 28, 2017.[2]

On June 26, 2017, as a restricted free agent McNeill agreed to a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Stars.[3]

During the 2017–18 season, while with the Texas Stars in the AHL, McNeill was traded by Dallas to the Nashville Predators in exchange for Andrew O'Brien on February 3, 2018.[4] He joined the Predators AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals, and contributed with 19 points in 31 games.

As a free agent in the off-season, McNeill signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Boston Bruins on July 1, 2018.[5]

International play[edit]

McNeill first played in an international event at the 2010 World U-17 Hockey Challenge for Canada Pacific. He was later selected to Team Canada at the 2011 IIHF World U18 Championships.[6] He appeared in 7 games and collected 6 assists in a fourth-place finish. He mirrored his fourth-place finish for Team Canada at the 2013 World Junior Championships with no points through 6 games.[7]
