Flyers Activate MacDonald

News: Andrew MacDonald (lower body) has been activated from injured reserve and will play Thursday against the Wild.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald missed the previous four weeks with the lower-body injury, sitting out a total of 10 games. He's been able to practice the last few days and shouldn't face any limitations in his return, which was conveniently timed after the team lost fellow defenseman Michael Del Zotto (lower body) to an injury a night earlier.

Flyers' MacDonald Out Wednesday

News: Andrew MacDonald (lower body) was on the ice for Wednesday's morning skate but won't play later in the evening against the Rangers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald resumed practicing Monday and is still in the process of regaining conditioning after missing the previous four weeks with the lower-body injury. He's officially considered questionable to play Thursday against the Wild, but the more realistic return date would seem Saturday's tilt with the Blue Jackets. Regardless of when he returns, MacDonald won't be able to play until the Flyers open a roster spot to accommodate his return from IR.

Isles' MacDonald Practices

News: Andrew MacDonald (lower body) practiced with the team Monday, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald didn't take part in contact drills, so he'll almost certainly sit out Wednesday's game against the Rangers. Flyers GM Ron Hextall said Wednesday that MacDonald is expected to be activated on Nov. 21, so keep an eye out for another update around that time.

Flyers' MacDonald About 10 Days Away

News: General manager Ron Hextall said Andrew MacDonald (lower body) would return from injured reserve in about 10 days, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald was set to resume skating Tuesday, but the Flyers opted to shut him down the past two days since it wouldn't have helped him in the recovery process. It doesn't sound like it's a major setback for the blueliner, who remains on track to miss a total of about four weeks, as was initially projected.

Flyers' MacDonald Doesn't Skate Tuesday

News: Though he was initially expected to skate on his own prior to Tuesday's practice, Andrew MacDonald remained off the ice, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Coach Craig Berube dismissed any notion that a setback might have prevented Andrew MacDonald from taking the ice, so it looks like the team will simply wait another day or two before letting the blueliner resuming skating. He's just past the three-week mark of the four-week projected timetable he was given when he suffered the injury in late October.

Andrew MacDonald

Flyers' Macdonald To Skate Tuesday

News: Andrew MacDonald (lower body) will skate Tuesday, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly reports
Analysis: This will not be the first time Andrew MacDonald has skated since suffering a lower body injury, but he will need to continue to practice like this before he will be able to return.

Andrew MacDonald, D, PHI

Andrew MacDonald

Flyers' MacDonald Skates Thursday

News: Andrew MacDonald (lower body) skated Thursday, but there is still no timetable for his return, Wayne Fish of The Bucks County Courier Times reports.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald has reached the point in his recovery where he can take the ice, but he will still likely need another week or two to get back to 100 percent.

Andrew MacDonald, D, PHI

Andrew MacDonald

Flyers Place MacDonald On IR

News: Andrew MacDonald (lower body) was placed on injured reserve prior to Thursday's game against the Kings.
Analysis: Though the Flyers chose to wait a few days before doing so, Andrew MacDonald ultimately landed on IR, as was expected when he was ruled out for four weeks last Friday. With Kimmo Timonen (blood clots) on the Flyers' non-roster injury list and Braydon Coburn (lower body) also on IR, the Flyers have already lost three of their projected top four blueliners to long-term injuries.

Andrew MacDonald

Flyers' MacDonald (Lower Body) Out Four Weeks

News: Andrew MacDonald (lower body) will be out four weeks, according to general manager Ron Hextall.
Analysis: He had appeared in all seven of the Flyers contests, recording three points and an average ice time of 22:55, ranking second on the team. This leaves the Flyers thin on defense, as Braydon Coburn will also miss another four weeks with a lower-body injury. Call-ups for the injured defensemen are undetermined at this time.

Flyers' MacDonald Scores, Assists In Win

News: Andrew MacDonald scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Stars.
Analysis: Andrew MacDonald is showing the Flyers he's worth the six-year, $30 million extension they threw at him in April. The defenseman has three points in the first five contests, a pace that -- if he can maintain it -- would lead him to smash his points total (28) from last season. Still, he's a defenseman first, and his minus-2 rating blemishes an otherwise strong start.

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.

Andrew MacDonald

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.
