Player

MacLean played in the NHL for 11 seasons from 1980 to 1991. A standout as a junior, Maclean was drafted late by the St. Louis Blues. After not initially making the full-time roster, Maclean chose to play for Dalhousie University so he would be eligible to for Team Canada in the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid. The experience helped Maclean to excel when he finally did crack the NHL, scoring 36 goals in his rookie season after being traded to the Winnipeg Jets. He continued to enjoy success in Winnipeg on a line with Dale Hawerchuk, tallying three 30 goal seasons and three 40 goal seasons, before being dealt to the Detroit Red Wings for Brent Ashton. After another 30 goal season for Detoit he was traded to back to St.Louis with Tony McKegney for Adam Oates and Bernie Federko. In 1990-91 Maclean suffered rib injury and retired after ten seasons with 324 goals and 349 assists for 673 points. His best season statistically was the 1984–85 season when he scored 41 goals and 101 points. MacLean has the distinction of being the highest-scoring NHL player born in France, with 673 points, although he moved to Canada when he was two and learned to play in Alberta, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The second overall is Philippe Bozon with 41 points, who, unlike MacLean was also trained in France.

Coach

MacLean is currently an assistant coach with the Detroit Red Wings. In the 2007-08 NHL season, MacLean won the Stanley Cup as assistant coach of the Red Wings. Before joining the Red Wings, MacLean was also an assistant coach for the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim under Mike Babcock. Before becoming an NHL coach, MacLean lead the Quad City Mallards of the United Hockey League to the Colonial Cup Championship.

Personal life

MacLean lives in Detroit, and has three children. Erin now lives in Toronto, while A.J. played for the Halifax Mooseheads. Dave currently lives in Phoenix, Arizona as a video analyst under direction of Wayne Gretzky. He has a summer home in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. MacLean was born at RCAF Station Grostenquin in Grostenquin, France, to Canadian parents while his father was stationed there.
