The milestones come as the team heads south to take on the high flying Flames who have been at the forefront of the title race from day one.

McKenzie has a near 20-year career in the EIHL, dating back to his debut with Basingstoke Bison in 2003.

He also holds the record for icing for more Elite League teams than any other player in total - eight in total.

He has laced up with Coventry Blaze, Belfast Giants, Edinburgh Capitals, Cardiff Devils, Dundee Stars, Braehead Clan and Flyers - he is the only players to ice with all four Scottish teams.

Owen’s 300th game comes in his third spell with Fife.

He first played with the team in 2016, returning in 2018-19 and again in 2021 in between a season with Belfast Giants.
