This is Bruce MacGregor. The “Redheaded Rocket” as he was once called. MacGregor had some decent scoring seasons in the original 6 and at age 23 he scored 21 goals and looked like a guy who might be a big time scorer.
He ended up being a very responsible two-way winger who could get you 15-20 goals a season (career high 28). He had an exceptional playoff run in 63-64 and ended up playing 893 NHL games before coming to the WHA and the Oilers.
MacGregor hung around in a management role for many years with the Oilers under Glen Sather and was Assistant GM when they were rolling for all those SCF’s.
The Oilers could use a Bruce MacGregor right now, in the Fernando Pisani role. They could use a Doug Hicks or Dave Langevin too, and if Lee Fogolin dropped in it would be manna from heaven.
Still, there is lots to like about our team.
Like a victory. Tonight.
Bruce MacGregor guarantees it.
