Jan 2021 – Comments from GM Treliving are all praise for Connor. Seems like he will be the team’s seventh D to begin the season. His versatility will be a good asset moving forward. The team seems to really like what they’ve seen from their top-six so Mackey will have to wait for an opportunity to present itself for him to grab everyday minutes. – Joel Henderson
Dec 2020 – Connor Mackey is a smooth-skating defenseman with a powerful stride. He’s known for his adjustment to pressure, high hockey IQ in situational reads and anticipation to play development and his ability to play with different defender styles. He is way more of a playmaker and transitional defenseman and he has shown the ability to run a PP. With Calgary, it looks like he could switch to the right side and fill a need for depth the Flames have been needing this offseason. He has a potential to start off the season at the 6th or 7th defender and move his way higher with steady play. He is physical and defends the rush well. Flames land the high-profile free agent from Minnesota State University and hope he can provide multi-cat production at the NHL level for fans.
