Lane MacDermid

Lane MacDermid was once traded for Jaromir Jagr.

Lane who?

Lane MacDermid participated in a career total of 21 NHL games. The Bruins third choice, 112th overall in the 2009 draft, the big, heavy forward played with the Owen Sound Attack before joining the Owen Sound Attack for their run to the Memorial Cup tournament.

MacDermid turned pro the following season. His role with the Bruins farm team was very limiting. He scored only twice and had five points while racking up 155 penalty minutes.

MacDermid's pro role never really expanded in the Boston system. He would score 17 goals in four AHL season, while accumulating 516 penalty minutes in a total of 249 games with Providence.

His role as a tough guy did earn him eight games in Boston. He would sit in the penalty box for 15 minutes.

In April 2013, the Boston Bruins traded Lane MacDermid to the Dallas Stars for Jaromir Jagr and prospect, Cody Payne. The Stars played MacDermid 6 games in 2012-2013, during which he scored 2 goals.

In the 2013-14 season, MacDermid played 6 more games with Dallas. By November 2013, the Stars traded MacDermid to the Calgary Flames where he was assigned to the now defunct Abbotsford Heat.

Early in 2014, MacDermid announced his retirement from professional hockey at only 24 years old. Following his assignment to the AHL, MacDermid failed to report to the team, forcing the Flames to suspend him. MacDermid had lost his passion to continue playing, according to Calgary executive Craig Conroy.
