Isles' McDonald Gathers Two Assists

News: Colin McDonald gathered two assists in Tuesday's 5-1 trouncing of the Coyotes.
Analysis: Colin McDonald's surprising play has turned what was expected to be a brief stay with the Islanders into a permanent deployment with the big club. Though he sees only limited minutes by virtue of assuming a bottom-six role, McDonald has piled up two goals and six assists in 10 games, while also serving as a strong source of hits.

Isles' McDonald Playing Effectively

News: Colin McDonald had an assist, four shots on goal, and six hits in Thursday's win over the Predators.
Analysis: After being waived by the Islanders early in the season, Colin McDonald had spent the previous four months in the minors before returning to the big club Feb. 8. Despite holding down a bottom-six role, he's been a surprising source of offense for the Isles, contributing two goals and four assists over his last seven games. Don't expect McDonald to continue to score at that clip or be much of an asset in the fantasy realm, but if nothing else, the winger appears to have at least solidified a regular spot in the Isles' lineup.

Isles' McDonald Earns First-Star Honors

News: Colin McDonald scored a goal for the second straight game, added an assist and dished out nine hits Tuesday in a win over Edmonton.
Analysis: Colin McDonald's had quite a surprising little offensive outburst over these last two games -- just his third and fourth at the NHL level this year. The 30-year-old has been producing in the AHL (35 points in 40 games), but his career high in the big leagues is last year's 18 points.

Isles Recall McDonald On Emergency Basis

News: Colin McDonald was recalled from AHL Bridgeport on an emergency basis Sunday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Colin McDonald was recalled along with Harry Zolnierczyk on Sunday as Michael Grabner (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve. One of the two recalled forwards will likely stick around past Sunday, with McDonald probably being the favorite.

Isles Send McDonald Back To AHL

News: Colin McDonald was reassigned to AHL Bridgeport on Wednesday.
Analysis: Colin McDonald's emergency recall earlier in the day seemed to suggest an Islanders forward was dealing with an injury, but it proved to be a false alarm. It's unclear if he ever rejoined the Islanders following his latest call-up, but he'll remain on standby in the event the team needs him again.

Islanders Recall McDonald Again Wednesday

News: Colin McDonald was recalled from AHL Bridgeport on an emergency basis Monday.
Analysis: Colin McDonald was recalled in the same fashion Monday, but was reassigned Tuesday because the team's other forwards were all healthy enough to play. If that turns out to be the case again for Thursday's contest, then he will likely be headed back to the AHL once again.

2/3/2015

Colin McDonald, RW, NYI

Colin McDonald

Isles Reassign McDonald

News: Colin McDonald was reassigned to AHL Bridgeport on Tuesday, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: Colin McDonald has shuttled back and forth between Bridgeport and Long Island the last few days due to Casey Cizikas' uncertain injury status, but never managed to get in a game. With Cizikas apparently healthy enough to play Tuesday against the Panthers, a return to the minors looms for McDonald.

Colin McDonald, RW, NYI

Colin McDonald

Islanders Recall McDonald On Emergency Basis

News: Colin McDonald was recalled from AHL Bridgeport on Monday on an emergency basis.
Analysis: Colin McDonald's emergency recall likely indicates one of the forwards is dealing with an injury, and it appears Casey Cizikas is the likely candidate as he wasn't a member of the lines at practice. If Cizikas can't go, McDonald should draw into the lineup for just the third time this season.

Isles Reassign McDonald

News: Colin McDonald was reassigned to AHL Bridgeport prior to Saturday's game against the Red Wings, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Colin McDonald was strictly considered an emergency option Saturday while Casey Cizikas contended with a foot injury. After Cizikas was able to skate during the warmup without incident, McDonald's services were no longer needed by the Islanders.

Colin McDonald

Isles Recall McDonald

News: Colin McDonald was recalled from AHL Bridgeport on an emergency basis Friday.
Analysis: Colin McDonald's promotion would seem to signal that one of the team's forwards acquired an injury in Thursday's loss to the Bruins, likely putting their status in jeopardy for Saturday's game against the Red Wings. The Islanders only had 12 forwards on the active roster prior to McDonald's call-up, so there would seem to be a strong chance for the 30-year-old to break into the lineup right away if an injury is indeed in play. McDonald cracked the Isles' 23-man roster out of training camp, but only appeared in two games before he was waived in late October.

Isles' McDonald Clears Waivers

News: Colin McDonald cleared waivers Thursday, Tim Wharnsby of CBC reports.
Analysis: The Islanders dropped Colin McDonald from their 23-man roster Wednesday after he had seen only limited minutes on the fourth line for the team to start the season. He'll report to AHL Bridgeport, with Anders Lee likely to be recalled to take his spot on the Islanders roster.

10/22/2014

Colin McDonald, RW, NYI

Colin McDonald

Islanders Waive McDonald

News: Colin McDonald was placed on waivers by the Islanders on Wednesday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: The Islanders are expected to recall Anders Lee from AHL Bridgeport on Wednesday, with the expectation that he'll provide more offensive upside in a bottom-six role than Colin McDonald offered. McDonald has appeared in only two games, averaging 10:38 of ice time.

Isles' McDonald Busy In Victory

News: Colin McDonald assisted on two goals to finish with a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Though he wasn't able to connect on any of his five shot attempts, Colin McDonald was active as a facilitator in his 12:16 of ice time. It marked his second multi-point performance in four games.

Offensive Explosion For Isles' McDonald

News: Colin McDonald scored two goals, added an assist and went a sparkling plus-4 in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Carolina.
Analysis: Well, that came out of nowhere. Colin McDonald had previously collected just 13 points and a minus-23 rating on the season, and hadn't recorded a single multi-point game. He actually now has a respectable seven points in his last nine contests, though there's a four-game pointless streak in that span.

Plus/Minus Getting Ugly For Isles' McDonald

News: Colin McDonald has nine points and a minus-19 rating through 48 games this season.
Analysis: Aside from his lofty hit total (135), Colin McDonald rightfully remains an afterthought in most fantasy formats. His limited scoring skills will probably forever confine him to a bottom-six role.

Isles' McDonald Scores Goal In Loss

News: Colin McDonald scored his second goal of the season during Friday's 4-3 loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Colin McDonald now has a goal and an assist in his last three games since returning from a hip injury. He's got two goals and two assists on the season.

Isles' McDonald Could Be Facing Suspension

News: Colin McDonald could be facing a suspension for a hit to the head of the Kings' Trevor Lewis on Thursday.
Analysis: Lewis wasn't hurt on the play, but Colin McDonald's shoulder did make contact with Lewis's head. McDonald just returned from a hip injury, but will likely be given a short vacation by Brendan Shanahan within the next day or two.

Isles' McDonald Confirmed To Play Thursday

News: Colin McDonald (hip) will play Thursday against the Hurricanes, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: Colin McDonald will make his return to the lineup after missing the last five games due to the hip injury. The injury was originally suffered in the second game of the season, but McDonald tried to play through it and struggled mightily, posting a minus-7 rating in nine games before he was temporarily shut down.

Isles' McDonald Expected To Play Thursday

News: Colin McDonald (hip) is expected to return to action Thursday vs. the Hurricanes, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: Colin McDonald has missed the past five games with the hip injury but looks to be on the cusp of a return after taking part in morning skate before Tuesday night's loss to the Capitals. He previous suffered the hip injury earlier in the season, only to aggravate it soon after returning. Playing through the injury may have impacted his effectiveness, as he's only totaled one point in the nine contests he's suited up for this season.

Isles' McDonald Will Play Thursday

News: Colin McDonald (hip) will play Thursday against the Oilers, ESPN's Katie Strang reports.
Analysis: A hip injury kept Colin McDonald from Tuesday's tilt, but it seems the issue was indeed minor, as he's set to return to the lineup Thursday. After putting up seven goals and 10 assists in 45 games last season, McDonald has just one point (a goal) in five games so far this year.

Isles' McDonald Finds Twine

News: Colin McDonald scored his first goal of the year Tuesday in addition to collecting four PIMs and a plus-1 rating.
Analysis: Colin McDonald delivered 17 points last year despite averaging 11:22 of ice time per game, and he's seen a little boost in ice so far this year. This was his first contribution on the offensive end, though.

Isles' McDonald Nets Two In Win

News: Colin McDonald lit the lamp twice in the Islanders win over Philly on Thursday.
Analysis: Colin McDonald is certainly not the player on the Islander you would expect to have a multi goal game, especially when neither goal was an empty netter, but this pretty much tells you all you need to know about how the Flyers' season is going.

3/16/2013

Isles' McDonald Back Saturday

News: Colin McDonald (illness) is back in the Islanders' lineup Saturday.
Analysis: After missing Thursday's contest, Colin McDonald seems to be healthy again and ready to contribute on the Isles' third line Saturday.

Isles' McDonald Signs Two Year Extension

News: Colin McDonald signed a two-year extension with the Islanders Friday, James Mirtle of TSN1050 reports.
Analysis: Colin McDonald has tallied 10 points this season in 24 games for the Islanders. He doesn't blow you out of the water offensively, but has proven to provide great depth for the Islanders on their third line this season.

Isles' McDonald (Illness) Sitting Out Thursday

News: Colin McDonald (illness) will not play Thursday against the Lightning, New York Newsday reports.
Analysis: Surprisingly, Colin McDonald is still feeling under the weather despite having two days to recover from the illness. His status remains up-in-the-air for Saturday against the Panthers.
