Hugh Randall "Randy" McKay (born January 25, 1967 in Montreal, Quebec) is a retired Canadian professional player. Playing the right wing position, he played in the National Hockey League from 1988 to 2003 with the Detroit Red Wings, New Jersey Devils, Dallas Stars, and Montreal Canadiens.


McKay was selected by the Detroit Red Wings in round six (113th overall) of the 1985 NHL Entry Draft. Although a physical presence on the ice, he is best remembered for scoring the winning goal in game six of the 1995 Eastern Conference Finals against the Philadelphia Flyers; the Devils won the game 4–2 and went on to win their first Stanley Cup by upsetting the heavily favored Detroit Red Wings in four games.

On October 28, 2000 in a regular season game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, Randy McKay and teammate John Madden each scored 4 goals in a 9–0 win for the Devils. It was the first time since 1922 that two teammates each scored 4 goals.

McKay was also a member of the Devils when they won the Stanley Cup in 2000 against the Dallas Stars in six games. He retired after the 2002–03 NHL season, finishing his career in his hometown as a member of the Montreal Canadiens.

He scored 162 goals and 201 assists in 932 NHL games played, and 20 goals and 23 assists in 123 playoffs games.
