In today's Stamford Times, Connecticut natives were given an update on local product and USHL defenseman, Drew MacKenzie.
Waterloo coach P.K. O'Handley has coached the Hawks for six season and described McKenzie in glowing terms. McKenzie is scheduled to play at the University of Vermont next year and was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in last year's NHL draft. "Drew has really helped our team to get to the finals," said O'Handley. "He has a very good all-around game and his presence on the ice is second to none. (Drew) is one of the finest young men I have ever had the opportunity to coach. He will be a heckuva defenseman at Vermont and in the NHL."MacKenzie and the 'Hawks are currently locked at one game apiece in the Clark Cup final match-up with Omaha.
