Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bruce McIntosh
Defenseman Bruce McIntosh grew up in Edina, Minneapolis where athletics were always a big part of his life. An avid football and baseball player, McIntosh had a tremendous talent for hockey, and decided to follow that route. It paid off with a scholarship to the University of Minnesota. During his senior year in 1971 the school advanced to the NCAA championship tournament but failed to win the national title. However, McIntosh was named to the NCAA Championship All-Tournament Team.

In 1972 he joined the United States National Team and represented his country at the 1972 Sapporo Olympics. The club, led by the likes of Henry Boucha and Robbie Ftorek shocked the international hockey world by bringing home the silver medal, which was by far the highlight of McIntosh's career.

McIntosh, fresh off his silver-medal effort, signed a free-agent contract with the Minnesota North Stars that summer and played with the team for two games. He played just one more year of pro hockey, retiring after the 1972-73 season while playing for the IHL's Saginaw Gears.
