Center Stu McNeill of Port Arthur, Ontario, was a well-rounded player, who seemed to play all facts of the game very well. A strong skater, with good puckhandling skills, he also provided steady support in the defensive zone, a habit he learned while playing minor league and then with the Port Arthur North Stars of the TBJHL. In 1956, the Stars played in the Memorial Cup tournament where McNeill had 15 points in 13 games. He was then loaned to the Regina Pats for another three games. McNeill played a third season with the North Stars in 1956-57, and was again a participant in the Memorial Cup, after being loaned to the Fort William Canadiens.

In 1957-58 McNeill played 52 games with the Hamilton Tiger Cubs of the OHA. He also got to appear in his first two NHL games that year with the Detroit Red Wings. He was called up for another eight games over the next two years, scoring one goal and one assist. Having a ten game NHL career in Detroit, playing with the likes of Howe, Lindsay and Abel, was by far the highlight of McNeill's career.

McNeill retired from active competition after the 1959-60 campaign after a season of playing in the WHL with the Edmonton Flyers.
