Jake McCabe was born on October 12, 1993 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The 61 defenseman was playing for the United States National Development Team of the USHL before he was drafted in the second round, 44th overall, by the Buffalo Sabres in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

After his time in the USHL, McCabe decided to join the University of Wisconsin to play for the Badgers. During his three years with the Badgers, he would be named to the All-WCHA Third Team in 2013, All-Big Ten First team and AHCA West First-Team All American in 2014.

When he graduated, the Sabres immediately gave him a shot on the NHL level where he made his debut on April 3, 2014 in a 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

On the international stage, McCabe won gold medals in the 2010 World Under 17 Hockey Challenge, the 2011 IIHF World Under 18 Championships, and in the 2013 World Junior Championship. He also represented the U.S. to a sixth place finish at the World Championship in 2014 and again in 2016.
