Report: As we start to get into the higher numbers, we'll start to run into the cup-of-coffee players like Aaron MacKenzie (although this week will actually be a lot of fun). MacKenzie spent just 9 days on the roster, playing in 5 games, so you won't be getting a thorough analysis from me. He appeared to be a steady player in his own end - one of several smart-and-simple players the Avalanche utilized defensively. It looked like he had a little zip in his shot, but he only has 13 goals in 366 AHL games, so that's probably not something to get all excited about.

It's just 5 games, but he only was on the ice for one goal against - a PP goal by Dallas' Fabian Brunnstrom.

I wish I had a better pic of MacKenzie, but I guess I should be happy that I had one at all.

Fun Fact: MacKenzie has been an AHL teammate of Jason Bacashihua in each of the last 5 seasons

Outlook for 2009: MacKenzie is could land pretty much anywhere this offseason - in the AHL, though, not the NHL.
