Dan MacRae Announces Retirement

Uniondale, NY (July 27, 2023) – New York Riptide defenseman and team captain Dan MacRae has announced his retirement from the National Lacrosse League after 13 years, 12 seasons, and an NLL Championship with the Calgary Roughnecks in 2019.

The Oakville, Ontario native was originally selected first round, sixth overall by the Calgary Roughnecks in the 2011 NLL Entry Draft. MacRae suited up for 203 NLL games, scored 30 goals and added 96 assists for 126 points over his career.

MacRae was acquired by the Riptide ahead of the team’s inaugural season in the 2019 Expansion Draft, where he was selected in the fourth round. On January 18th, 2020 in a game against the Georgia Swarm, MacRae scored the organization’s first ever game winning goal in a 13-12 overtime win. The defender played just two games with the Riptide during the 2022-23 season after struggling with an injury.

“What can I say that hasn’t been said already about Danny Mac,” said Riptide EVP & GM Rich Lisk. “Dan epitomized everything that we wanted representing our organization. We cannot thank Danny enough for what he did for our organization, and he will be forever known as the first brick in the foundation of the Riptide. The consummate professional on and off the field he will always be part of the Riptide and we wish him nothing but the best of luck in the future.”
