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.

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.

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.

Isles' McDonald Back Saturday

News: Colin McDonald (illness) is back in the Islanders' lineup 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.

Isles' McDonald Misses Practice

News: Colin McDonald (illness) missed practice Tuesday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: The Islanders don't play until Thursday, and it is probably safe to assume that Colin McDonald will be healthy enough to play by then.

Isles' McDonald Returns To The Lineup Tuesday

News: Colin McDonald will return to the lineup Tuesday after serving his two-game suspension for boarding, according to Newsdays's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Colin McDonald returns against Ben Lovejoy and the Penguins, against whom he earned the suspension. One has to wonder if there could be some fireworks in this game if Pittsburgh believes the league's discipline wasn't enough.

Islanders' McDonald Suspended Two Games

News: The NHL has suspended Colin McDonald two games for a boarding penalty on Pittsburgh's Ben Lovejoy in Tuesday's game, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.
Analysis: Colin McDonald will miss games Thursday and Sunday and will be eligible to return next Tuesday. He has added some muscle to the Islanders' roster in his first extended NHL stint, recording 23 hits and 19 PIM through six games, but he will not be available again until next week. It should be interesting to see if there will be repercussions from Lovejoy and the Penguins.

Isles' McDonald Awaiting Suspension Decision

News: Colin McDonald had a meeting with Brendan Shanahan on Wednesday to discuss his major boarding penalty Tuesday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Colin McDonald boarded the Penguins Ben Lovejoy. There was no injury on the play and McDonald doesn't have a history of dirty play, yet a one-game suspension would seem to be in order.

Analysis: Colin McDonald spent last season in the Penguins' organization where he was one of Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's top scorers.

News: Colin McDonald is expected to replace Tyler Kennedy in the lineup Tuesday, the Penguins' Web site reports.
Analysis: Colin McDonald has served in a checking role with his limited ice time; this will be the first time he gets a chance to play with skilled linemates, including Steve Sullivan and Cal O'Reilly.

Analysis: Colin McDonald, fresh off the AHL All-Star Game, has scored 12 goals and 38 points in 41 games. He doesn't have a point in two NHL games with the Pens and is unlikely to see more than six or seven minutes of ice time Tuesday, if he dresses.

McDonald Sent Down By Penguins

News: The Penguins have re-assigned Colin McDonald to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, the team's official site reports.

Pens' McDonald To See Power-Play Time

News: Colin McDonald will play for the Pens on Friday, according to the Penguins' Web site.
Analysis: Coach Dan Bylsma said he could see some time on the power play. "He's going to get that opportunity (to play) tonight," Bylsma said Friday. "We'll see him in a third-, fourth-line role, but also as a net-front on the power play." Colin McDonald will need to have a big game or risk demotion in favor of Eric Tangradi.
