(Edmonton, AB) - The Alberta Sports Hall of Fame announced today its list of 2015 inductees, which, along with Oilers Dressing Room Attendant Joey Moss, included former Oilers Assistant General Manager Bruce MacGregor. Born and raised in Edmonton, MacGregor joined the Edmonton Oil Kings in 1957 and led the team to one Memorial Cup final. He turned professional at nineteen and played with the Edmonton Flyers before making it to the NHL.

MacGregor spent 10 years with the Detroit Red Wings, then was traded to the New York Rangers where he played for four more seasons. A steady, hard-working player, he scored 213 goals and had 257 assists in 893 games.

Bruce represented Canada in the 1974 Summit Series against Russia – a rematch of the exciting 1972 Canada/Russia series. He then returned to Edmonton, playing in the World Hockey Association with the Oilers for two seasons, scoring 37 goals and adding 38 assists.

Bruce cemented his legacy in hockey as Assistant General Manager to Glen Sather, as the two put together the Edmonton Oilers teams that dominated the NHL in the 1980s, winning five Stanley Cups.

MacGregor and his fellow 2015 inductees will be honoured at the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame's annual Induction Banquet, held in Red Deer, Alberta on May 29, 2015.
