These were predictable outcomes for most observers. McKenzie made a lot of noise in the bottom six (and sometimes the top six) with Dallas down the stretch. After his AHL Rookie of the Year selection in 2013-14, it was already a pretty foregone conclusion that he would be getting another deal this summer. The only question was if it would be two-way or one-way and the length. While this is only a QO right now, it has to be assumed that McKenzie has earned some length in his contract and perhaps a second year on one-way. I would assume Colton Sceviour's recent contract (two years with the first two-way and the second one-way) is a good example to follow.
