Dundas Real McCoys sign former Buffalo Sabre Jay McKee

The Dundas Real McCoys have geared up for the Allan Cup Hockey stretch drive with the addition of three veteran players to their lineup for Friday’s game.

General Manager Don Robertson announced that the club has signed veteran National Hockey League defenceman Jay McKee along with former American Hockey League defenceman Jeff MacMillan, and re-signed goaltender Jeff Maund.

“It’s good to add players who want to play because they plan to win, and that’s what we need,” said Robertson. “The fact these players are loaded with experience is truly a bonus to our club.”

McKee, a native of Kingston, Ontario played 802 regular season game in the NHL with the Buffalo Sabres, St. Louis Blues, and Pittsburgh Penguins from 1995-96 and 2009-10. He also appeared in 60 NHL playoff games.

MacMillan played five seasons in the AHL with the Utah Grizzlies, Hartford Wolf Pack and Syracuse Crunch, and had a brief tour of duty with the NHL Dallas Stars. He won a Memorial Cup with the Oshawa Generals in 1996-97. Maund played 22 games for McCoys during the past two seasons for the Robertson Cup titleholders.

“There isn’t a team in hockey that does not want to add a big strong defenceman, and at our level McKee is the perfect fit as we plan to contend this year, and go hard next year when we play host the Allan Cup Tournament,” said Robertson.

The Dundas Real McCoys host the Brantford Blast tonight at 7:45pm from the Market Street Arena.
