McKenney put in just over two seasons with the Barrie Flyers of the OHA before turning pro with the Hershey Bears in 1953-54. A season later, he was summoned to play for the Boston Bruins where he quickly established himself as a smooth skater and slick playmaker. During his nine seasons in Boston, he topped the 20-goal level seven times.

In 1960, McKenney enjoyed his best season, netting 69 points in 70 games while taking home the Lady Byng Trophy for gentlemanly play.

After a brief stint with the Rangers, McKenney was thrown in as part of a blockbuster trade that sent him along with Andy Bathgate to the Leafs in exchange for Arnie Brown, Bob Nevin, Rod Seiling, Dick Duff and Bill Collins. Both Bathgate and McKenney played important roles in the Leafs' 1964 Stanley Cup victory.

In the years that followed, McKenney's NHL career gradually declined as he bounced between the big leagues and the minors. After a short stay with the Detroit Red Wings in 1966, he joined the Pittsburgh Hornets of the AHL and retired the following season.

But the NHL's expansion in 1967 brought an invitation to join the St. Louis Blues where McKenney logged 40 games before being demoted to Kansas City of the CHL. He then closed out his on-ice career, playing two seasons with the Providence Reds of the AHL.
