Mackenzie MacEachern scores first NHL goal

 

By @MichaelCaples –

Cross a big one off the hockey bucket list for Mackenzie MacEachern.

The Troy native just scored his first NHL goal.

In a Martin Luther King Day early start for the St. Louis Blues in Los Angeles, the former Brother Rice and Michigan State star scored to give his NHL club a 1-0 lead in the first period.

 

This is MacEachern’s fifth game with the Blues since he was called up before their Jan. 10 contest.

MacEachern was a third-round pick of the Blues in 2012; he signed with the club in the summer of 2016 to forgo his senior season with Michigan State.
