Les Blue Jackets de Columbus retiennent les services de Derek MacKenzie

COLUMBUS, États-Unis - Les Blue Jackets de Columbus ont accordé, jeudi, un contrat de deux ans au joueur de centre Derek MacKenzie.

Le patineur âgé de 30 ans a 19 buts et 26 passes à son dossier en 193 matchs dans la LNH. Il a amassé deux aides dans l'uniforme des Thrashers d'Atlanta, qui l'avaient réclamé au repêchage de 1999 (128e au total).

MacKenzie a cumulé une fiche de sept buts et de sept passes en 66 matchs, la saison dernière.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
