    Flyers' Andrew MacDonald: Sent to AHL

    MacDonald has been loaned to the Phantoms of the AHL. Terming the transaction a "loan" is a friendlier way of saying that MacDonald has been demoted, yet we'd be remiss to not inform you of his talents. MacDonald is regarded as a smart defenseman capable of picking up a heavy amount of ice time. He played this past Tuesday against the Islanders and was on the ice for 19:29, and he's not averaged less than 20 minutes per game in a given campaign since his cup of coffee with the Islanders in 2008-09. He's a veteran that mostly gets in the way of opponents at this juncture.

    Flyers' Andrew MacDonald: Recalled by Flyers

    MacDonald was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Monday. MacDonald has posted 13 points (12 assists) in 24 games thus far with Lehigh Valley, and it's enough to earn him a promotion to the Flyers. The blueliner seems a likely candidate to draw into the lineup Tuesday with both Luke Schenn and Radko Gudas dealing with injuries.

  • Waived by Flyers

    News: The Flyers waived Andrew MacDonald on Wednesday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
    Analysis: Andrew MacDonald, who picked up two goals, 10 assists and 41 PIM in 58 games as a Flyer last year, is expected to clear waivers Thursday and report to the Flyers' AHL affiliate.

  • Flyers' MacDonald Needs Six Weeks Of Rehab

    Analysis: The injury ends a miserable campaign for Andrew MacDonald, who supplied only 12 points and a minus-5 rating over 58 games while noticing a steep drop in ice time from a season earlier. With five years and $25 million still remaining on the massive extension MacDonald inked last April, the Flyers are undoubtedly expressing some buyer's remorse. MacDonald should enter the 2015-16 season at full health and with much to prove.

  • Flyers' MacDonald Factors Into Scoring Saturday

    News: Andrew MacDonald chipped in an assist in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Red Wings.
    Analysis: Signed to a large extension by the Flyers last April, Andrew MacDonald is already giving the team a case of buyer's remorse. MacDonald is on track to finish with a point total less than half of his mark from a year ago, and has already served as a healthy scratch for multiple games this season. He's been more of a lineup regular of late, but with only two points in his last 16 games, it might not be long before he's banished to the press box again. That $5 million cap hit may be even look worse in the years to come.
  • Flyers' MacDonald To Serve As Healthy Scratch

    News: Andrew MacDonald will be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets, Randy Miller of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
    Analysis: Andrew MacDonald missed Friday's game against the Blue Jackets for personal reasons, but has since returned to the team. He'll find himself a healthy scratch for the second straight game, however, as the return of Braydon Coburn appears to have made him the team's seventh defenseman. MacDonald will have an even tougher time clawing his way back into the lineup when Kimmo Timonen (blood clots) returns to action, perhaps as soon as next week.
  • Flyers' MacDonald Returns To Team

    News: Andrew MacDonald rejoined the team for Sunday's contest against the Sabres, but was made a healthy scratch, reports.
    Analysis: Andrew MacDonald had missed Friday's game as he dealt with a personal matter, and coach Craig Berube elected to hold him out an extra game so he could get some practice time before returning to game action. He should be back in the lineup for Tuesday's contest against the Blue Jackets.
  • Flyers' McDonald (Personal) Won't Play Friday

    News: McDonald will not play Friday due to the death of his grandmother.
    Analysis: McDonald normally plays on the third pair of the Flyers' defense, but won't be on the ice Friday as he joins his family. The amount of time required to grieve can be different by case, making it unclear exactly when he will return to the club.
