A smallish yet offensively skilled player, McKim is a graduate of the QMJHL's Verdun Junior Canadiens (1986-1989) and the Hull Olympiques (1989-90).

In his four years in the QMJHL, the shifty McKim registered 382 points (171-211-382) in 270 games played. A QMJHL First Team All-Star and the CHL's Most Sportsmanlike Player in 1999, McKim signed as a free agent with the Calgary Flames in the summer of 1990 and went on to play one season with the team's IHL affiliate in Salt Lake. After only one season in the Flames organization, the Saint John, NB, native signed on with the Toronto Maple Leafs, however, despite leading the team's AHL affiliate in St. John's in scoring with 93 points (43-50-93) in 79 games, the team left him unprotected.

In the summer of 1993, McKim signed with the Boston Bruins. For the better part of the next two seasons, McKim split his time with the team's AHL affiliate in Providence while suiting up for 36 games with the parent club in Boston. After two seasons with the Boston organization, McKim signed as a free agent with the Detroit Red Wings. In his only season with the Red Wings' organization, McKim led the team's AHL affiliate in Adirondack in scoring with a career high 94 points (39-55-94) in 77 games while seeing action in two games with team's parent club in Detroit.

Bouncing around from team to team in the AHL and IHL early in his career, McKim opted to play for Canada's National Team in 1995-96 before testing the waters overseas the following year. Over the next three years, McKim was a member of the Berlin Polar Bears of the DEL before moving on to Switzerland in 1999-00. Althoug he spent the majority of the year in Switzerland, McKim played in a handful of games with the Canadian National Team before calling it a career after only 18 games into the 2000-01 Swiss National League season.
