Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Iain Duncan
Right winger Iain Duncan was born in Weston, Ontario on August 4, 1963 and went on to play four seasons with Bowling Green University. In his final season, 1986-87, Duncan scored 28 goals and 68 points and not only was named to the CCHA First All-Star Team for his efforts but made his NHL debut following his collegiate season. A 1983 draft pick of Winnipeg, Duncan joined the Jets for the tail end of the '86-'87 NHL season, playing six games and scoring a goal and two assists.

The next year, Duncan spent just eight games with the Jets farm club the Moncton Hawks, while the rest of time was spent with the big club. In 62 NHL games that season, Duncan scored 19 goals and 42 points. He was named to the NHL's All-Rookie team at season's end.

The 1988-89 season was spent entirely at the NHL level. Though his goal production dipped to 14, his overall point total improved to 44, despite playing fewer games. The following season, Duncan found himself on the outside looking in. The Jets had made trades to acquire right wingers Greg Pawslawski and Paul MacDermid, which bumped Duncan down the depth chart and onto the farm team.

In 1990-91, he managed to make it back to the NHL level, but just for a two-game stint, and he was unable to make an impression. The bulk of his season was spent back down in Moncton.

Duncan left the Jets organization the following year to join the Phoenix Roadrunners of the International Hockey League. The next season, he played a single game with the Adirondack Red Wings of the AHL before jumping leagues again and signing on with the Toledo Storm of the East Coast Hockey League. With the Storm, Duncan found his niche, being named a Second Team All-Star on the strength of scoring 40 goals and 90 points. Duncan spent the next two seasons with the Storm but was limited to just eight and 37 games due to injuries, though his health held up in the off-season when he played pro roller hockey for the New Jersey Rockin' Rollers.

Duncan was out of hockey for the 1995-96 season but returned to the game a year later, suiting up with the Nashville Nighthawks of the Central Hockey League. After one more season with Nashville, Duncan retired from professional hockey in 1998.

In February of 2000, Bowling Green State University announced their all-century team, and Duncan was selected to the second team.
