>McKenzie Accepts Scholarship
>According to the Penticton Western News , Penticton Vees (BCHL) forward Curtis McKenzie, has accepted a scholarship offer from Miami and apparently chose to attend college and play in the NCAA, as opposed to going to the WHL.
McKenzie will not sign a letter of intent until November, therefore the University had no official comment. The 6’1, 190 lb-seventeen year old split time last season on the third and fourth lines, and finished the 07-08 campaign with 3 goals, 7 assists and 81 penalty minutes.
Here’s what the Golden, Brtish Columbia native had to say about the University and what led to his decision to choose Miami:
“I flew down there last week and I really liked it. Nice facilities, great coaches, great teammates, great academics. They made me feel really comfortable and it’s the perfect spot for me.”
Teammates consider McKenzie “a power forward who is strong in front of the net and in the corners, but can also score goals.”
His scholarship begins in the 2009-2010 season, but an option is available for deferment until the 2010-2011 season.
