Before he became a broadcaster, McNab played for parts of 14 NHL seasons (1973-87) with four teams. He ranks 19th among Americans in NHL history with 813 points in 995 regular-season games, including 363 goals and 450 assists.
McNab had seven consecutive campaigns with 70 or more points (including four with 80-plus) and six straight with 35-plus goals, helping his teams to the postseason 10 times. He also reached the Stanley Cup Final in three straight seasons from 1975-77.
McNab spent his first three years with the Buffalo Sabres, the club that drafted him 85th overall in the 1972 NHL Entry Draft. The center then played eight seasons (1976-84) with the Boston Bruins and he helped the team to the Stanley Cup Playoffs in seven of his eight campaigns. McNab earned a spot in the 1977 NHL All-Star Game and tallied a career-high 86 points that season. He ranks 11th in Bruins history in goals (263), 13th in points (587) and is eighth in playoff goals (38).
McNab concluded his playing career by competing in parts of two years with the Vancouver Canucks and a two-season stint with the New Jersey Devils before he retired.
