Flyers Sign MacDonald To An Extension

News: Andrew MacDonald has signed a six-year, $30 million contract extension Tuesday to remain with the Flyers, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald -- acquired by the Flyers from the Islanders in March -- finished the 2013-14 season with 28 points in 82 games while averaging 24:37 of ice time, good for 16th in the NHL. He also led the league in blocked shots with 242.

MacDonald Among Flyers Rested On Sunday

News: Andrew MacDonald was among the Flyers' scratches Sunday against the Hurricanes, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Along with Andrew MacDonald, Nicklas Grossmann, Steve Downie, Michael Raffl and Zac Rinaldo were given an off day Sunday by the team in advance of the playoffs.

Flyers' MacDonald Helping Boost Defensive Partner

News: Andrew MacDonald has found a groove with defensive partner Luke Schenn, helping boost the latter's play, reports Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly.com.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald has notched just one point since his early-March trade from the Islanders, but offense has never been a strongpoint for him. He still leads the league in blocked shots, a benefit that owners in deeper leagues can appreciate. His pairing with Schenn is being compared to the Chris Therien and Eric Desjardins combo that was a defensive stalwart for the Flyers in the late 90s.

Isles Trade MacDonald To Flyers

News: Andrew MacDonald was traded to the Flyers on Tuesday for a 2014 third-round draft pick and a 2015 second-round draft pick, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald has rumored to be on the move for quite some time, so this move doesn't exactly qualify as a shocker. As soon as MacDonald arrives in Philadelphia, he should immediately become a fixture in the lineup, though he may have difficulty reaching the 25:25 TOI he was averaging in Long Island. At the very least, the move to the Flyers should allow him to improve upon the minus-19 rating he posted with the bottom-dwelling Islanders.

Isles' MacDonald Expected To Be Dealt By Deadline

News: Andrew MacDonald is expected to be traded by the Islanders before the Mar. 5 deadline, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: The rebuilding Islanders will be looking to get a draft pick for Andrew MacDonald, while the blueliner is expected to help round out defensive depth for a contender. Matt Donovan would likely fill MacDonald's place on defense if and when he's traded.

MacDonald's Rare Goal Lifts Isles

News: Andrew MacDonald scored the game's only goal Tuesday in a 1-0 victory over the Capitals.
Analysis: It's good for the Isles and Andrew MacDonald's intrepid fantasy owners to see the blueliner finally turn things around after his recent struggles. He'd gone without a point in six straight -- collecting a brutal minus-8 rating in that span -- and now has all of two points to show for his last 14 games.

Isles And MacDonald Not Negotiating

News: Andrew MacDonald and the Islanders have not begun contract negotiations, according to Newsday.
Analysis: The fact that the team has yet to begin contract negotiations may be all you need to know about how general manager Garth Snow feels about the $5 million price tag that Andrew MacDonald's agent wants. Like Thomas Vanek, MacDonald will also have to be dealt before the March 5 deadline if he does not sign a new contract with the Islanders. The Isles view MacDonald as an above average second pair d-man, not the top pair that his agent does.

Andrew MacDonald

Isles' MacDonald Could Be Trade Bait

News: Andrew MacDonald could be dealt before the trade deadline, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald is an unrestricted free agent after the season and could be traded should his contract demands be more than the Islanders are willing to pay. The Isles made a mistake in not trade Mark Streit before the deadline last season when they had no intention of re-signing him. One would think they would have learned from this error and not let MacDonald go and not get anything in return once again.

Andrew MacDonald

Isles' MacDonald Returns To Action

News: Andrew MacDonald not only shook off his upper body injury to play Wednesday, but also scored his second goal of the season.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald is far from an offensive dynamo but his return is good news for the Islanders. With their lack of depth along the blue line they can't afford to have any capable defensemen out of the lineup.

Isles' MacDonald Leaves Practice Early

News: Andrew MacDonald (upper body) left practice early Monday after being hit with a puck, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald is not anyone's definition of a top NHL defenseman but with injuries to Lubomir Visnovsky, Mark Strait, and Thomas Hickey, the Isles can't afford to have another one of their blueliners out of the lineup. There is no word yet on how long MacDonald might be out for.

Isles' MacDonald Leaves With Injury

News: Andrew MacDonald left Friday's game against the Penguins with an undisclosed injury and is questionable to return, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald left the game in the first period and did not come back out for the second period. The nature of the injury is unknown, so consider him day-to-day for now.

MacDonald And Isles: No Talks Yet

News: Andrew MacDonald and the Isles have yet to begin talks on a new contract, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald is only making $550K this season so he is going to get a pretty good raise by either the Islanders or another team this offseason.

Isles' MacDonald Not On Top Defensive Pairing

News: Andrew MacDonald has been paired with Matt Donovan so far in training camp, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: This is a change from last season when Andrew MacDonald was almost always paired with Travis Hamonic. MacDonald is still one of the Isles best d-men, his use in the second pairing rather than the first may be coach Jack Capuano's way of making sure he has a good solid defenseman on the top two lines and not a knock on MacDonald's play.

Isles' MacDonald (Hand) To Miss Six-To-Eight Weeks

News: Andrew MacDonald underwent surgery on his broken hand and is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: The injury will keep Andrew MacDonald out for the rest of the postseason, further dimming the Islanders' hopes of defeating the Penguins in their first-round series. MacDonald amassed 12 points and 20 penalty minutes in 48 games this season.

Isles' MacDonald Likely Has Broken Hand

News: The injury to Andrew MacDonald is likely a broken hand, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: If this injury is confirmed, it will end Andrew MacDonald's season and also weaken the already suspect Islanders defense.

Islanders' MacDonald Suffers Upper-Body Injury

News: Andrew MacDonald suffered an upper-body injury in Tuesday's game and will not return, Katie Strang of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: The extent of the injury is unknown, but Andrew MacDonald will miss the rest of Tuesday's game thanks to his second-period injury. Expect more details regarding his setback to be released after the conclusion of the game.

Isles' MacDonald Signs Overseas During Lockout

News: Andrew MacDonald has agreed to a lockout deal with HC Energie Karlovy Vary of the Czech Extraliga, ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: The 26-year-old racked up 19 points in 23:22 minutes of ice time per game with the Islanders last season. He'll likely serve as a member of the Islanders' second defensive pairing once he returns to the team when a deal to end the lockout is reached.

MacDonald Nets Isles' Lone Goal

News: Andrew MacDonald scored the Islanders' only goal in Thursday's loss to New Jersey, giving him three points over the last five games.
Analysis: The numbers are not bad for Andrew MacDonald, who sits with 16 points in 60 games, but they're hardly something that makes him appealing to anyone but owners in the deepest of leagues. The Islanders receive plenty of offense from Mark Streit and MacDonald likely will not factor into too many goals the remainder of the season.

Andrew MacDonald

Isles' Macdonald One Of Their Better Blueliners

News: Andrew MacDonald has three goals and an assist in 30 games for the Isles so far this season.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald has been one of the more consistent of the Isles defensemen this season, and although he has a -7 rating, for the Isles, that's not so bad.

News: Andrew MacDonald (leg) skated at Friday's practice, according to the Islanders' official Twitter page.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Wild. Even if he needs a couple more days, it appears he'll return closer to the lower end of his 2-to-4 recovery timetable.

Analysis: Andrew MacDonald missed Friday's game as well, and it's unclear when he'll be ready to return to action. He's gotten off to a terrible start this season. MacDonald has posted just one point through 22 games this season after posting 27 points in 60 games last season.
