Jack McIntyre was a fine offensive defenceman who fell one game short of 500 in a solid career. His strength was moving up ice with the puck and working the power play, which he did to good effect with three different teams in 1950s.

Born in Brussels, Ontario, McIntyre was a scoring star in junior with the St. Catharines Teepees. After scoring 28 goals for the AHL's Hershey Bears in 1950-51, the young defender scored 12 goals in 51 games as a rookie with the Boston Bruins. The next year, his solid work helped the Bruins reach the Stanley Cup finals. McIntyre scored a key goal and checked tenaciously when the team upset Detroit in the semi-finals.

After starting the 1953-54 season in the minors, McIntyre was traded to the Chicago Black Hawks for cash. He played a key offensive role for the struggling club and scored a career-high 18 goals in 1956-57. After a trade brought him to the Detroit Red Wings, McIntyre played his last three NHL seasons there before returning to the minors. He was a fine scorer in the AHL and WHL before joining the Guelph Regals in the OHA senior circuit. After sitting out the 1967-68 season, the veteran blueliner retired after playing one last year of senior hockey with the Woodstock Athletics.

After hanging up his skates, McIntyre coached the OHA's London Knights, the Johnstown Jets, and several senior teams in Guelph.
