Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Norm McAtee
Center Norm McAtee played 13 games for the Boston Bruins in 1946-47. He was a fine playmaker and checker who enjoyed a long career in the minors and senior leagues.

The native of Stratford, Ontario played junior B with the local Miners and Midgets before moving on to the Oshawa Generals of the OHA. He made his pro debut in the AHL and AHA during the 1941-42 season then spent nearly three years in military service in World War II.

After the War he registered 43 points for the Indianapolis Capitals and Hershey Bears of the AHL in 1945-46. He was a regular on the Bears the next season when he was summoned by the Bruins to play 13 games. He registered an assist and was a solid defensive player for the club before returning to the minors.

During his last seven years McAtee was a solid performer in several leagues. In 1949-50 he excelled on the Sherbrooke Saints and led all playoff scorers when he helped the team win the Quebec Senior title. McAtee retired in 1954 after playing three years with the IHL's Troy Bruins. He went out on a high note by reaching the 20-goal mark in each of his last two years as a pro.
