Since being a sixth-round pick of the Nashville Predators in 2002, McKenna played in the NCAA, ECHL, American Hockey League and NHL. He played 15 games for the Lightning, 10 for the Senators, four for the Blue Jackets, two each for the Stars and Devils and one apiece for the Coyotes and Flyers.

McKenna spent a vast majority of that time in the AHL.
