Unlike Philp, size is not an issue for Brett McKenzie. McKenzie was the 120th ranked North American skater for the 2015 Draft by NHL Central Scouting. McKenzie scored 11 goals and added 21 assists for 32 points in 68 OHL games last season.

There are some who follow the OHL more closely than I do who believe that McKenzie should have been drafted last week. Although his point totals are not flashy, McKenzie is better known for being a solid two-way player. Every organization, the Flyers included, has room for big centers with awareness in all three zones. ... ment-camp/

McKenzie can be described as a smart defensive forward who skates well and is excellent on the draw. He is not overly physical, but is overall awareness in all 3 zones is coveted. (Tyler Parchem, EP 2015) ... 0O7Ss.dpuf
