McBain, who resides in Las Vegas, played pro hockey with the Tampa Bay Lightenings in the 1990’s. He also played in the UK before joining the minor league Las Vegas Wranglers.
McBain played in Las Vegas from 2003-08 before retiring and becoming an assistant coach.
As a coach, McBain was accused of impersonating one of the hockey players in order to make contact with a young girl.
According to the Las Vegas Review Journal,
…. as a coach, McBain noticed the victim had a crush on a Wranglers player, Jason Krischuk, who has played for the team off and on since 2006, including filling in for an injured player last season. Police believe McBain created a false email account and used it to contact the victim. He would also text her, send lewd photographs and ask about their sexual encounters under the guise of being Krischuk.
Police said McBain also left money, as much as $400, for the victim for sending nude photos of herself to the email address he created under the other player’s name. The victim eventually discovered the person emailing and texting her was not Krischuk
He remains free on $75,000 bail pending his sentencing scheduled for January 30, 2013. He faces 2 to 40 years in prison and lifetime supervision as a sex offender.
