McKay, 24, is a  5’11” and 174 lbs. with sandy red hair and is said to be driving a vehicle with Illinois plates. McKay recently played his final collegiate game on April 9th when Minnesota State lost 5-1 to the Denver Pioneers in the Frozen Four national title game.

MacKay tested positive for ostarine, a muscle growth drug banned under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing, the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee National Anti-Doping Policy and the International Ice Hockey Federation Anti-Doping Regulations.
