Observations

March 2019 – McKenzie has dealt with some injuries throughout the AHL campaign and suffered another lower-body ailment during the Mar. 2 contest against Belleville. Even though the Moose had a week off between games (Mar. 2-9), McKenzie has still missed the last two and there is no timetable for his return. Jamie Zadow

September 2018 – McKenzie has been strong throughout the preseason and even received accolades from head coach Paul Maurice — “He’s had a really hard camp, in a good way. He’s skated hard, played well.” The 20-year-old signed an entry-level deal in July and will make his pro debut with the Manitoba Moose this season. But, don’t be surprised if he challenges for an opening night roster spot in the bottom six. McKenzie has a quick first step and scoring touch, but sometimes his small frame (5-8, 173) can be misleading, as he plays with some edge and tenacity. Jamie Zadow
