Defenceman Dale Dunbar spent parts of two years with the Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins in the 80s. His strength was taking the body and clearing the puck out of his own zone.

Born in Winthrop, Massachusetts, Dunbar spent four years anchoring the blueline at Boston University. In May, 1985 he was signed as a free agent by Vancouver and made it into one game the following season. The bulk of his first two pro seasons came with the AHL's Fredericton Express and the Peoria Rivermen of the IHL.

Dunbar came to terms with the Boston Bruins in August, 1987 and was a farmhand on the AHL's Maine Mariners before retiring in 1989. He made it into one NHL game for Boston in 1988-89 and helped Maine reach the Calder Cup semifinals the previous year.
