Observations

June 2018 – The 2012 third-round-pick continues to struggle to stick out above the pack in the AHL. Having put up 10 points in 46 games for the Chicago Wolves, MacEachern is an RFA this summer. The 24-year-old can still contribute at the AHL level but to make it to the NHL would be a much more difficult mountain to climb. Josh Epstein

September 2017 – MacEachern spent 55 games in the AHL with five goals and six assists for 11 points.  MacEachern seems to be several years away from his first NHL games and projects as a bottom nine grinder.  He has the size and determination that the St. Louis Blues identity values.  This preseason MacEachern is getting looks from the coaching staff; and the fact he has work ethic serves him well.  He does show some value as a penalty killer; but he is not a player who is particularly fantasy relevant at this time. Doug Abrams

June 2016 – It was a slow build for MacEachern during his three years in East Lansing with the Michigan State Spartans on mostly poor teams. His offensive numbers grew from 12 points, eight of them goals, in his freshman season to 26 points in his sophomore season, culminating in a 14-goal, 30-point junior campaign, both good for the team lead. During his three years he scored 13 per cent of MSU’s goals. At the end of March, MacEachern put pen to paper and agreed to a two-year, two-way pact with the Blues. He’s still got a long way to go before he is NHL ready but with an intriguing combination of size and hands, it’s easy to see why St. Louis took him with their third rounder in 2012. At 6-3, 205 pounds he’s the kind of player needed for a team to be successful in the Western Conference. Still a bit raw at this point he’ll need a couple years in the AHL for some seasoning where he can work on his defensive game and learn to use his size more effectively. Brad Phillips

February 2014 – MacEachern has had a disappointing offensive season so far with just 10 points in 25 games for Michigan State. Considering that he is turning 20 shortly more is expected from him at this point. Eric Daoust

June 2013 – Mackenzie MacEachern was drafted in 2012 after being named MVP at the high school level in Michigan for the second consecutive year. Unfortunately, his move to the USHL in 2012-13 was very disappointing as he was limited to 21 points in 50 games. He has a projectable frame along with the speed and hands that NHL teams covet but his performance so far shows that he is a high-risk prospect who is several years away from contributing if he ever does. He is committed to the Michigan State Spartans for next season. Eric Daoust
