In what has been a difficult season to date, Carlton has received some good news with young gun Harry McKay signing a two-year contract extension to remain in the navy Blue.
Drafted with pick 10 in the 2015 draft the talented forward has always displayed promise but had a few injuries to deal with along the journey.
This season has been the breakout year for McKay averaging 3.2 goals a game, doubling his previous best season output.
Along with impacting the scoreboard, McKay has also taken the second most marks in the competition inside 50.
The key forward who is currently leading the Coleman medal with 38 goals from 12 matches was a player in demand and despite media speculation around his future will continue to call Ikon Park home.
When the new deal was announced the 23-year-old could not have been more emphatic in his commitment to the club.
“I was always staying a Blue. Although at the moment we’re not exactly where we want to be, I have full faith that over the next couple of years we can get to where we want to be and climb back up the ladder.”
Currently the Blues are undertaking a complete review of their football department and David Teague has been in the media spotlight, perhaps unfairly given he is only in his second full year in charge and still has a year to run on his contract.
Having a key cog sign on is a great show of faith from Harry McKay who will have a significant role to play in the Carlton revival.
