2008-09: In 60 games with Saskatoon in the SMHL, Kendall McFaull scored 7 goals with 23 assists while accumulating 115 PIM.
2009-10: In his WHL rookie season, McFaull played in 62 games for the Moose Jaw Warriors. He scored 4 goals and added 6 assists for 10 points, while accumulating 70 penalty minutes. In 7 playoff games for the Warriors, McFaull picked up 1 assist and 10 penalty minutes.
2010-11: Playing on one of the meaner defenses in the WHL, McFaull typified the Warriors team spirit with a snarling no-nonsense game. A big stay at home type, McFaull has gotten stronger and continues to focus on clearing the crease and punishing forwards, to the detriment of any offensive game he might develop. Statistically, his 1 goal and 6 assists in 69 games represents a decline in production but his game is based on being solid in his own end.
2011-12: McFaull played in 67 games for Moose Jaw in his fourth WHL season. He scored 6 goals with 12 assists and was plus-14 with 56 penalty minutes. Moose Jaw finished first in the East Division and reached the Eastern Conference finals. McFaull was plus-five with 1 goal and 4 assists in 12 playoff games. He did not receive a contract from the Jets in June 2012; becoming an unrestricted free agent.
McFaull is a big body with the frame to one day be a shut-down type defenseman. He enjoys the physical part of the game and is more of a stay-at-home type but can provide an occasional offensive spark.
McFaull was not signed by the Jets and is now a free agent. He is playing for Moose Jaw of the WHL.
