Donato produced an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

Donato set up fellow third-line winger Brandon Tanev for the opening tally at 14:32 of the second period. Through three games, Donato has a goal, an assist, seven shots on net and a pair of hits. The 25-year-old winger has shown good chemistry with Tanev and Morgan Geekie to begin the season, but it's unlikely any of the trio moves into a top-six role any time soon.
