Dale B. McTavish (born February 28, 1972 in Eganville, Ontario) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player who played nine games in the National Hockey League for the Calgary Flames in 1996–97, recording one goal and two assists.
McTavish spent four seasons with the Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey League, helping to lead the Petes to the league championship in 1992–93, and a Memorial Cup berth. Undrafted, McTavish spent two years playing Canadian college hockey with the St. Francis Xavier X-Men before attracting the attention of NHL scouts. McTavish signed a contract with the Flames in 1996, but spent most of the next two seasons in the minors with the Saint John Flames.
McTavish continued his career in Europe in 1997, playing three seasons in the Finnish SM-liiga with SaiPa and the Espoo Blues. During the season 1999-2000 he scored 32 goals for Espoo Blues, which became the highest amount of goals anyone ever scored for Blues during one season. With SaiPa he reached SM-liiga semi-finals and was by far the most popular player within SaiPa supporters. In 2000, he moved to Switzerland, where he has played the last eight seasons. In 2000, he joined the Rapperswil-Jona Lakers where he spent five seasons. In 2006–07, McTavish played for the ZSC Lions. In 2007, he moved to EV Zug. For the season 2010-2011 McTavish returned to SaiPa, where his European career started. After that season he retired.
McTavish was a member of Team Canada at the 2007 Spengler Cup.
In 1995, McTavish also played for the New Jersey Rockin' Rollers inline hockey club of the Roller Hockey International, where he recorded two goals and three assists in six games.
The previous owner of the Pembroke Lumber Kings, Sheldon Keefe, announced over Twitter on May 29, 2013 that he had sold the Pembroke Lumber Kings to Dale McTavish.
