2010-11: McKegg made his pro debut, appearing in two games with the AHL Marlies, after leading the Erie Otters in points in his third OHL season.

2011-12: McKegg returned to Erie for his fourth OHL season after attending camp with the Maple Leafs. He was obtained by London in an OHL trade deadline deal in January and skated in 30 regular season games and both the OHL and Memorial Cup playoffs for the Knights. In 35 games for last-place Erie prior to the trade, he scored 12 goals with 22 assists and was minus-39 with 32 penalty minutes. He scored 19 goals with 22 assists and was plus-five for London during the regular season. McKegg was plus-five with 4 goals and 7 assists in 15 playoff games as Midwest Division champion London captured the OHL title. The Knights reached the Memorial Cup championship game, falling to host Shawinigan, 2-1 in overtime, and McKegg had 1 goal with 4 penalty minutes in five games.
Capable of lining up at center and wing, McKegg is an offensive catalyst with a good mind for the game. He’s a natural goal scorer who can find numerous ways to bury the biscuit. Not overly physical, but also doesn’t shy away from contact. He has deceptive hands and the ability to slip through tight areas. Game-to-game consistency and strength are areas of weakness in McKegg’s game currently.
McKegg has gotten a start on his pro career in 2012-13 as a member of the AHL's Toronto Marlies.
Projection: Complementary scoring winger.
