RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

MacKenzie has carved out a home for himself on the Blue Jackets' fourth line, but his ceiling in that role is 10 goals and 25 points. The Sudbury native recorded 14 points in 66 games with the Jackets last season.

2011-12

AHL star MacKenzie finally got his first crack at extended NHL action and scored 23 points in 63 games of mostly fourth line duty. He might keep his spot for another season, but as the Blue Jackets' prospects develop they'll have less need for someone with MacKenzie's modest skill set and upside.

2010-11

Veteran forward might finally get a shot at a full-time NHL job after scoring at a point-a-game pace in the AHL last season, but he'll probably be limited to fourth line duty.

2009-10

Had an impressive AHL season (22-30-52 in 64 games) but played in just one NHL game in '08-'09. This season will likely be more of the same.

2008-09

Veteran depth at center.

2007-08

Depth forward.

2006-07

MacKenzie is 6th on the depth chart at centre for the Thrashers so barring a few injuries donít expect him to be getting a lot of playing time in the NHL. Heís more of a defensive specialist so even if he does play, donít expect him to get many points. A perfect situation for MacKenzie would result in him posting 10 to 20 points. No fantasy value for the foreseeable future. Steve McCarthy
