2009 NHL Draft: Dallas Stars select RW/LW Curtis McKenzie in Round 6

Team: Penticton Vees (BCHL)
Position: RW/LW
Ht/Weight: 6-1.5, 192
DOB: February 21, 1991
Shoots: Left

A versatile, gritty and skilled forward who many think was underrated this past season. Has great scoring ability and loves to play physical.

From Mike Remmerde's draft profile:

There's so much to like about this player - he can score, he can hit, he drops the gloves, and he shows just enough finesse skill to be really projectable. Scores goals in lots of ways. Has a knack for tips and deflections out front. Doesn't get enough credit for his finesse ability. He can pick the corners on the move or thread some nice passes through traffic.

First step quickness and speed could be better. But has good balance and agility. For the style he plays, I don't think his skating is going to be a problem.

Will go into the dirty areas and compete physically. Plays in all situations and is very responsible defensively. Throws some pretty big open ice hits. Sticks up for his teammates and is pretty good when he drops the gloves.
