Michigan State forward Mackenzie MacEachern gave up his final year of collegiate eligibility to sign a two-year contract with the NHL’s St. Louis Blues.

MacEachern led the Spartans with 14 goals and 30 points as a junior. Over three seasons, he scored 33 goals and had 68 points in 108 games.

A third-round pick of the Blues in 2012, MacEachern didn’t miss a game during his time with Michigan State.

“I’d like to thank all the coaches, my teammates and Michigan State for the opportunity,” MacEachern said in a news release. “Being at Michigan State has definitely been the best three years of my life. I’m excited to move forward, but I’ll really miss MSU because of all the support. You couldn’t have a better support system than we have at Michigan State.”

    Not a surprise, State is struggling heavily right now

      I don’t think State struggling had anything to do with it. Most juniors that have pro potential skip their senior season. Just look at who has left already this year.

      • Shanahan

        State being bad likely made it easier for him to leave, pro potential notwithstanding.

    Good luck, young man. We always knew you had that kind of talent.
