Mike McKenna: Playing career officially over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna announced his retirement from the NHL on Tuesday.

McKenna spent most of his professional playing career in the AHL, but did make 35 NHL appearances over parts of six seasons, compiling a 7-17-3 record while posting a 3.60 GAA and .890 save percentage.

Flyers' Mike McKenna: Hits waiver wire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna was waived by the Flyers on Wednesday.

McKenna will likely receive a one-way ticket out of Philadelphia since Cam Talbot has finally joined the team following his trade from the Oilers last Friday. It's entirely possible that McKenna will pass through waivers unclaimed, and in that case, he'd almost assuredly end up with the Flyers' top developmental affiliate, AHL Lehigh Valley.

Flyers' Mike McKenna: Returns from conditioning stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna was recalled from his conditioning assignment with AHL Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

McKenna switches spots with Brian Elliott (lower body), who was sent down on a conditioning assignment of his own. McKenna figures to serve as the third option between the pipes for the Flyers behind Carter Hart and Anthony Stolarz. If Philadelphia can't find a trade partner for McKenna soon, the club will likely be forced to place the Ontario native on waivers.

Flyers' Mike McKenna: Embarks on conditioning stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna was loaned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday for conditioning purposes.

McKenna looked out of sorts in his Flyers debut versus the Capitals on Jan. 8 -- he permitted four goals on 24 shots in a home loss -- and the team opted to keep him out of the seven games that followed. With further consideration to Anthony Stolarz pitching a 38-save shutout to the detriment of the Rangers on Tuesday, the Flyers seized an opportunity to send McKenna to the top developmental affiliate to work on his conditioning. McKenna simply doesn't play enough to warrant fantasy consideration.

Flyers' Mike McKenna: Shelled in Flyers debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna turned aside 20 of 24 shots during Tuesday's 5-3 road loss to the Capitals.

McKenna is on his third NHL time in 2019, but his first start for the Flyers will likely do little to help his cause with his new team. Dropping to a 1-5-1 record behind a 3.52 GAA and .897 save percentage. The Flyers crease remains Carter Hart's to lose and it likely won't be long before McKenna is returned to the minors so his fantasy value is virtually non-existent at the moment.

Flyers' Mike McKenna: Blue-paint bound Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna will start in the road goal Tuesday versus the Capitals, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Flyers will tie an NHL record by starting their seventh goalie of the season when McKenna enters the blue paint. McKenna started the season with Ottawa and recorded an .897 save percentage, 3.96 GAA and 1-4-1 record in 10 appearances. That stat line isn't appealing for a meeting with the Caps, who rank sixth in the league with 3.44 goals per game.

Flyers' Mike McKenna: Claimed off waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna was snatched off the waiver wire by the Flyers from the Canucks on Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

McKenna will join his third organization in 2019, having been traded from Ottawa to Vancouver on Wednesday. If the netminder gets in a game for Philadelphia, it would set an NHL record for most goaltenders used in a season at seven. Don't be surprised to see McKenna back on waivers down the road, as the team is waiting, perhaps anxiously, for Brian Elliott (lower body) to return.

Canucks' Mike McKenna: Waived by Vancouer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna was waived by the Canucks on Thursday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

The Canucks acquired McKenna from the Senators via a trade Wednesday. He's posted a weak 1-4-1 record to go along with a 3.96 GAA and .897 save percentage over 10 games this season, and him being waived suggests that he may have been a simple throw-in asset in order for the Senators to be able to acquire fellow goalie Anders Nilsson and skater Darren Archibald. Thatcher Demko, a highly touted goalie prospect, could be on his way up to Vancouver in the near future.

Canucks' Mike McKenna: Dealt to Vancouver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators traded McKenna, Tom Pyatt and a 2019 sixth-round pick to the Canucks in exchange for Anders Nilsson and Darren Archibald on Wednesday.

With Craig Anderson (concussion) out indefinitely, the Senators are in desperate need of goaltending help, and McKenna simply isn't cutting it, having compiled a 1-4-1 record while posting a 3.96 GAA and .897 save percentage in 10 appearances, a sub-par performance which likely prompted Ottawa to make this trade to bring in Anders Nilsson. For the time being, McKenna will serve as Jacob Markstrom's backup, but that may change if the Canucks decide to promote Thatcher Demko.

Senators' Mike McKenna: Swamped by Isles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna stopped 33 of 38 shots in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Islanders.

The final Islanders goal was scored into an empty net. Ottawa actually held a 3-1 lead early in the second period, but McKenna couldn't make it hold up as he lost his third straight start in regulation. The veteran backup now has a 1-4-1 record, 3.96 GAA and .897 save percentage through 10 appearances this season, and Ottawa may have to look elsewhere for consistent netminding while Craig Anderson (concussion) is on the shelf.

Senators' Mike McKenna: In goal Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna will get the starting nod on the road against the Islanders on Friday.

McKenna has not performed well this season when called upon, as he is 1-3-1 with a 3.79 GAA and .902 save percentage in nine appearances. It could be a lighter workload for the netminder considering New York is averaging a mere 27.9 shots (second fewest in the league), although no team is giving up more shots than Ottawa this year (37.7 per game).

Senators' Mike McKenna: No help from mates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna made 29 saves in a 4-0 loss to the Capitals on Saturday.

The Senators didn't show up and McKenna couldn't do it alone. He's stuck at one win and it might stay that way for a while. McKenna plays for the Sens, after all.

Senators' Mike McKenna: Guarding goal Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna will defend the home net Saturday against the Capitals.

McKenna rarely sees time in the crease, but he will get the call Saturday with Craig Anderson (upper body) unavailable for the contest. He set aside 42 of 46 shots last time out, but his best work has come at home this season. In three home appearances, McKenna has recorded a 1.98 GAA and .950 save percentage. He faces a tough task Saturday against the defending champs, who have averaged 3.67 goals per game in December.

Senators' Mike McKenna: Sees a lot of rubber in rare start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna made 42 saves in a 5-2 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday. He allowed four goals.

It was a rare start for McKenna, who toils in obscurity behind Craig Anderson. The 35-year-old has started just 24 NHL games in the last decade, so you can see where his value lies.

Senators' Mike McKenna: Divisional clash looms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna will tend twine as Saturday evening's home starter versus the Canadiens, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Oh, there's another goalie on the Senators other than Craig Anderson? We say that in jest, but really, Anderson has appeared in 29 of a possible 33 games this season, rendering McKenna an afterthought in most fantasy settings. The journeyman owns a 1-1-1 record with a 3.98 GAA and .899 save percentage through three starts and six games in all. He'll take on a Habs team that has defeated Ottawa in the last two meetings between these Atlantic Division clubs.

Senators' Mike McKenna: Shines against Bruins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna was a hard-luck loser Sunday, making 42 saves on 44 shots but taking a 2-1 overtime defeat against Boston.

Anyone who took a chance on McKenna was rewarded with a brilliant performance Sunday, as the Bruins found themselves frustrated all day against the journeyman. That said, owners shouldn't expect this to continue in the coming week. Not only is Craig Anderson the No. 1 option for Ottawa, but a stretch of three road games that includes Nashville and Montreal isn't the place to use McKenna, even if he plays. Look elsewhere this week.

Senators' Mike McKenna: Stopping pucks Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna will start in goal during Sunday's home game against the Bruins.

McKenna will make his third start of the season. He has struggled this year with a .879 save percentage and 4.66 GAA. The Bruins haven't played to their standard lately, scoring two or less goals in five of their last six outings and recording just two wins in that span. McKenna's still not consistent enough to be depended on and is a high-risk option in daily leagues.

Senators' Mike McKenna: Captures first win of 2018-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna allowed three goals on 37 shots in a 4-3 victory against the Flyers on Tuesday.

The Flyers outshot the Senators in every period Tuesday, but McKenna's play allowed Ottawa to erase a two-goal deficit in the third. The 35-year-old has only appeared in one other game, so it's a small sample size, but this is an encouraging sign.

Senators' Mike McKenna: Between pipes against Flyers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna will tend the twine on the road versus Philadelphia on Tuesday, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

McKenna will be making his fifth appearance in the crease this season, having registered an 0-1-0 record and 5.41 GAA in his previous four outings. The St. Louis native's struggles will likely limit him to playing only when the team is scheduled for a back-to-back and he could find himself flipped for Mike Condon before the year is out.

Senators' Mike McKenna: Decent in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKenna stopped nine of 10 shots in relief of Craig Anderson in a 7-5 loss to Florida on Monday.

This outing went much better for McKenna than the last time he faced Florida, as he kept the Senators from losing much more ground over the final 20-plus minutes of the contest after Anderson surrendered six goals. Still, the goaltending situation is a mess in Ottawa, and neither netminder looks like a great choice for your squad.
