Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Dan McFall
Defenseman Dan McFall was selected in the 1981 NHL Entry Draft by the Winnipeg Jets in the eighth round, 148th overall while skating for the Buffalo Jr. Sabres of the NAJHL. The team totally dominated the league and eventually sought out stronger competition in southern Ontario by the late 1980's.

As a low-round pick, and wanting to pursue an education, McFall felt the natural choice was to accept a scholarship to play NCAA hockey with the Michigan State Spartans. During his four years with the team he improved his game each year and was twice selected to represent the United States at the World Junior Hockey Championships in 1982 and 1983. As a senior in 1984-85, McFall was named to the NCAA West First All-Star Team.

At the conclusion of the 1984-85 collegiate season, McFall dressed for two games with the Winnipeg Jets and was back for another seven games the following year, but never again saw the light of day in the NHL. After just eleven games with Forth Wayne of the IHL in 1986-87, McFall elected to retire from competitive hockey and pursue a career in business. He now runs the Dan McFall Full Stride Hockey Training Programs, which have gone national throughout the United States and focus primarily on powerskating skills for kids and adults alike.
