MacKenzie potted a shorthanded goal while adding an assist and plus-2 rating in Friday's 4-1 road win against the Ducks. MacKenzie also managed four hits and while added a blocked shot. He is now up to 138 blocks on the season. The veteran does not see any time on the power play and he remains strictly a bottom-six forward. He remains useful only in the deepest of pools at this point.
MacKenzie has 10 points while receiving an average of 12:15 of ice time across 41 games this season. The 35-year-old is having his best season as a Panther, and -- if he can increase his scoring pace just a tad in the second half -- could conceivably challenge his career high of 23 points set in 2010-11 with the Blue Jackets. MacKenzie doesn't see a lick of power-play time and is a fixture in the team's bottom six, however, so he's not likely to make any fantasy shockwaves anytime soon.
MacKenzie scored a goal and an assist in the 4-2 victory over the Canucks on Saturday. This was the center's first goal since Nov. 19 and marked the first time he has registered multiple points in a single night. MacKenzie has three goals and seven points in 29 games.
MacKenzie scored his first goal of the season during Monday's win over Tampa Bay. MacKenzie's offensive production is rare, and his defensive role makes him an undesirable fantasy asset. The Florida captain is more valuable to his team than your virtual squad.
MacKenzie tallied an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the rival Lightning. He also skated to a plus-2. The newly minted Panthers captain's point came on Colton Sceviour's shorthanded marker, making his offensive production that much more unlikely. MacKenzie is in his third season in South Florida and has just 25 points in 149 games during that span, so it's clear that his value lies solely in his on-ice leadership and checking roles rather than in the fantasy arena.
