Kirk McCaskill was an all-American hockey player at the University of Vermont. He was drafted in the 4th round of the 1981 NHL entry draft (64th overall) by the Winnipeg Jets, and played the 1983-84 season for the Sherbrooke Jets of the AHL. His father, Ted McCaskill, played with the Minnesota North Stars of the NHL and the Los Angeles Sharks of the WHA in 1967-68, 1972-73, and 1973-74.
