Norm Joseph McAtee (June 28, 1921 – August 25, 2010) was a professional ice hockey player who played 13 games in the National Hockey League with the Boston Bruins in 1946-47, scoring one assist.

Born in Stratford, Ontario, he and his brother Jud played together in junior ice hockey with the Oshawa Generals during the years when the Generals dominated the Ontario Hockey League, winning league championships with them in 1938-39. 1939-40 and 1940-41. They also won the Memorial Cup in 1939 and 1940.

At the end of the 1941 season, Norm joined his brother by signing as a free agent with the Detroit Red Wings in the NHL. However, beginning in 1942 and lasting throughout World War II, Norm became a flying officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force. After his discharge in 1945, he teamed with his brother in the Red Wings farm system before the two of them were traded to the Chicago Blackhawks for Doug McCaig in December 1945. Just over a month later, Chicago traded him to Boston for Bill Jennings, and Norm joined the Bruins for 13 games, recording one assist.[1]

After that, he finished his career in the minor leagues, ending as player-coach with the Troy Bruins in Troy, Ohio from 1951-54.[2]

After his retirement from hockey, McAtee stayed in Troy, becoming a referee in the International Hockey League and a color commentator for Dayton Gems games. He also worked for Sherwin-Williams until his retirement in 1984.[2]
