Via the Red Wings:
With the 140th overall selection in the 2012 #NHLDraft, your @DetroitRedWings select Michael McKee (D) from the Lincoln Stars.
McKee has committed to Western Michigan University. He is listed at 6’4” and 230 lbs.
You can follow DRW fifth round pick Mike McKee on Twitter at @mikemckee23.
McKee is huge—6’4” and 225 pounds—and NHL.com had him unranked and listed his stats only:
SEASON TEAM LEAGUE GP G A P PIM
2010-2011 KENT SCHOOL HIGH-CT 27 8 15 23 50
2011-2012 LINCOLN USHL 59 2 17 19 237
RWC on McKee:
5-140. D Mike McKee, 6-4, 232, Lincoln (USHL), 59-2-17-19-237. Numbers you need to know that you don’t often see from a Red Wings’ draftee — 6-foot-4, 232 pounds and 237 penalty minutes. Not ranked by Central Scouting, the rugged defenseman plays with a mean streak and is headed to Western Michigan next season in the Red Wings’ back yard.
Here’s the Macomb Daily’s Chuck Pleiness’s take on McKee…

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related.

I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
