William Henry 'Bill' McDougall (born August 10, 1966) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is best known for his record setting scoring performance during the 1992–1993 AHL playoffs.


McDougall signed with the Erie Panthers following a very successful season of senior hockey with the senior Port-aux-Basques Mariners. After an impressive 80 goals and 148 points in just 57 games, he was signed by the NHL's Detroit Red Wings and finished the end of the 1989–90 season with their farm club, the Adirondack Red Wings. He appeared in 3 games for the parent club the following season after posting strong offensive numbers with Adirondack.

McDougall was traded to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Max Middendorf in February, 1992, and ultimately made his hockey mark with their farm team, the AHL Cape Breton Oilers. The Cape Breton Oilers' 1992–1993 playoff run was one of the most dominant in AHL history, and McDougall emerged as the team's star, scoring a remarkable 52 points (26 goals and 26 assists) in 16 games en route to a Calder Cup championship for Cape Breton. McDougall was awarded with the Jack A. Butterfield Trophy for Most Valuble Player during the AHL playoffs. To this day, his AHL records for goals, assists, and points in a single playoff season still stand, and his total of 3.25 points per game, is more than was ever matched in the NHL. Wayne Gretzky holds the NHL record with 47 points in a single playoff season.

McDougall spend the following season in the Tampa Bay Lightning organization, appearing in 22 games with the parent club while scoring 3 goals and 3 assists. He then spent the next 8 seasons playing with various pro teams in Italy, Switzerland, and Germany. McDougall would return to his native Canada in 2002, and spent two seasons with the Dundas Real McCoys of the MLH in Ontario before retiring. He would return for one more season with the Real McCoys in 2005-06 before retiring for good.
