Ian played with his hometown team, the Sarnia Legionnaires of the OHA Junior B circuit before enrolling at the University of Waterloo in 1967 where he played for the school's hockey team. In 1971-72, he played in Sweden with Lulea in the Second Division.
On September 30, 1972, Ian was signed to a contract by the Chicago Blackhawks and he was sent to play with the team's CHL farm club in Dallas, Texas.
After four years of playing for the Dallas Blackhawks, he finally got his chance at playing in the NHL with the Chicago Blackhawks for three games during the 1976-77 NHL season, but after going -8 during his tenure with the Blackhawks, he was not recalled back to the team. Ian finished his playing career in Austria in 1978-79.
Even though he did not leave an indelible mark in the NHL, Ian was regarded as one of the best defensemen ever to play in the CHL during his 376 games in the league.
He was also named the CHL MVP in 1976 and its top defenseman in 1975 and 1976.
Ian's younger brother (via adopted), Tony McKegney played in the NHL for 13 seasons and played for the Blackhawks during the '90s.
