Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
McKenzie was a well-traveled enforcer, that's for sure. He was a popular player wherever he went, and the Devils were
no exception.

Coming to New Jersey, though, was good for him in that he would get to play deep in the postseason for the first time in
his career, even winning the Cup in his last season with the Devils.

Of course, he was not known for his scoring. So getting his 100th NHL career point is saying something. He would get
that with the Predators in 03-04, his last season in the League.

Since then, he had coached the Muskegon Lumberjacks of the USHL for 2 seasons, being the head man during the 12-
13 season, and was a player liaison for the NHLPA for 6 prior to that. He got into pro scouting after he left the Jacks,
joining the Florida Panthers' staff for 3 seasons. In September, 2016, it was announced that he would take the same role
for the expansion team in Las Vegas.
Entry Draft: 1989 Fourth Round Pick (73rd overall) by the
