Ken McRae (born April 23, 1968, Winchester, Ontario) is the head coach of the Peterborough Petes in the OHL. McRae is also a former right winger who played in 137 games in the National Hockey League with the Quebec Nordiques and Toronto Maple Leafs. He was drafted by the Nordiques in the first round, 18th overall, in the 1986 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing careerEdit

McRae played his junior hockey with the Sudbury Wolves and Hamilton Steelhawks from 1984–1988, where he was a highly touted prospect. The Quebec Nordiques drafted McRae in the first round of the 1986 NHL Entry Draft, and he appeared in his first NHL game with the team in the 1987–88 season. McRae would appear in 126 with the Nordiques before being traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs on July 21, 1992 for Len Esau.

He would appear in only 11 games with Toronto from 1992–94, as McRae spent most in the AHL with the St. John's Maple Leafs. That would be his last action in the NHL, as McRae would spend the remainder of his career in the AHL and the IHL. McRae would end his career with 137 NHL games, scoring 14 goals and 21 assists for 35 points, and 364 penalty minutes.

Coaching careerEdit

Upon his retirement from playing, McRae would become an assistant coach with the Austin Ice Bats of the Western Professional Hockey League. McRae then became the head coach of the Indianapolis Ice of the Central Hockey League in 2002, as he led the Ice to the best record in the Northeast Division with a 39-16-9 record in the 2002–03 season before losing in the second round of the playoffs. McRae returned to Indianapolis in 2003–04, as the team had a 37-23-4 record, finishing in second in the Northeast, however, the team lost in the first round of the playoffs.

From 2004–08, McRae was the head coach of the Corpus Christi Rayz, as he led the team to a 106-116-28 record in his four years with the team. His best season with the Rayz was in 2006–07, as the team had a 35-22-7 record.

In the summer of 2008, the Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey League hired McRae to become their new head coach.
