Fans have been curious about Brayden McNabb’s parents, Kim and Jeannine McNabb. The NHL star is not their only child- they have three more kids: Dean, Cara & Ashley McNabb.
There is no denying that the Canadian ice hockey player is making his dad & mom proud with his achievements on the rink.
Currently, McNabb plays for the NHL team Vegas Golden Knights (2017- now) along with Shea Theodore, Alec Martinez, Mark Stone & William Carrier, among others.
With the Golden Knights, he appeared in the 2018 Stanley Cup Finals.
However, they lost the Stanley Cup to the Washington Capitals, who had Evgeny Kuznetsov & the MVP honoree Alexander Ovechkin on their side.
Brayden McNabb was the 66th overall pick of the Buffalo Sabres in the 2009 NHL Entry draft, but it was until 2011 with the Sabres.
Earlier, the ice hockey star played for the Kootenay Ice (2006-11) as the 37th overall pick of the 2006 WHL Bantam Draft.
He even captained the Kootenay Ice in 2010-11 & led them to the 2011 Memorial Cup semi-finals, where they lost to Mississauga.
Brayden McNabb Parents
Brayden was born on January 21, 1991, in Davidson, Saskatchewan, Canada. McNabb is the son of Kim and Jeannine McNabb.
The player has not revealed anything about his family and parents, as they are comfortable outside of the spotlight of the media.
However, with the Knights’ draft picks, the team was expected to adjust its roster in the coming months.
The Knights’ draft picks included 13 defensemen, along with two more acquired via trade.
Jeannine McNabb said her son’s future was uncertain. “Time will tell whether he stays there or not,” she said. “With the hockey world, you never know.”
Furthermore, Jeannine said her son was shocked by the announcement, although he knew he could be picked.
“I know he really enjoyed Los Angeles, and he really liked his teammates,” said Jeannine. “But that’s part of the job.”
McNabb’s younger sibling, Dean McNabb, also plays hockey. Dean followed in the footsteps of his older brother, Brayden McNabb.
Vegas Golden Knights Journey
The Vegas Golden Knights selected Brayden after he left the Kings at the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft on June 21, 2017.
While joining the team, he chose jersey No. 3. The Vegas Golden Knights decided to extend the contract to four years for $10 million on November 27.
On February 2, the player will miss three games due to his injury. Eventually, he came back to the field, finished his first regular season, and scored a career-high goal.
Additionally, the Golden Knights were selected for the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs and faced the Los Angeles Kings.
McNabb and his team were successful in becoming the first NHL team to win the Stanley Cup Playoff series.
In addition to that, the 2018 Stanley Cup Finals were against the Washington Capitals, but they eventually lost.
After that, his usual partner Nate Schmidt got suspended, and the ice hockey player played with Colin Miller at the start of the season.
Furthermore, the Golden Knights were eliminated in the first round of the 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs.
After the elimination, Brayden’s former partner, Miller, was traded to the Buffalo Sabres.
Moreover, McNabb was offered a three-year contract extension worth $8.55 million on January 30, 2022.
