   Colin McCormick is recorded as having spent time in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League with the 1958/59 Prince Albert Mintos. After that there are no known stats for McCormick until 1968/69. Its likely he played senior hockey in Western Canada. In 1968 he signed a one-year contract as a 28 year old pro rookie with the Boston Bruins organization. He had a strong camp for the Bruins and rose all they way to #3 goalie in their system.

   Late October, 1968 McCormick was recalled from the Hershey Bears when Bruins goalie Ed Johnston was struck on the head the by a shot. Johnston missed over a month with a concussion and McCormick took his place on Boston's roster for most of that time. Gerry Cheevers played solid hockey and McCormick was never given an opportunity to showcase his ability at the NHL level.

   Colin McCormick only played one year of pro hockey. The mysterious goalie retired from pro hockey after his only season with the Boston Bruins.
