In 30 total games this year, the 6’1” forward has registered eight points and 44 penalty minutes. Over his WHL career, MacKenzie has played in 138 games with Red Deer and Saskatoon and has eight goals, 28 points and 163 PIMS.
“We’re excited to add Lukus MacKenzie to our lineup,” said Winterhawks Vice President, General Manager and Head Coach Mike Johnston. “He will provide great depth to our team for the second-half of the season.”
