Colin McDonald has been cut from the Philadelphia Flyers' training camp roster.

McDonald has 18 goals and 44 points in 140 career NHL games. The 31-year-old forward might still play for the Flyers at some point this season as an injury replacement. That being said, he needs to clear waivers before he can be sent to the minors.
Sep 30 - 2:29 PM

Colin McDonald has agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the Philadelphia Flyers.

McDonald had two goals and eight points in 18 games with the Islanders in 2014-15. He also recorded 14 goals and 35 points in 40 AHL contests.
Jul 3 - 1:24 PM

Colin McDonald saw his first action of the post-season on Saturday.

The winger said he had a tough time in Game 6 as it was his first game since the end of the regular season. "We know what’s at stake here," McDonald said. "Every game you’re playing desperate and obviously, this was the most desperate game all year."
Apr 26 - 7:34 AM

Islanders forwards Colin McDonald and Eric Boulton and defenseman Matt Donovan will all be healthy scratches Wednesday in Washington.

This trio does not carry any fantasy value for those of you in daily leagues. McDonald has played in just one game since March 7th and was able to score two goals and six assists in 18 games this season. Boulton had been seeing regular ice time during the last few games of the season but with physicality less of a need in the playoffs, he will be back in the press box for Game 1. And Donovan hasn’t played since March 21st and had picked up three assists in 12 games in the 2014-2015 season.
Apr 15 - 5:16 PM

Colin McDonald, Matt Donovan, and Eric Boulton will be scratched on Friday night against the Ottawa Senators.

Unfortunately none of these three players have much fantasy value, but that's mainly due to a lack of playing time. McDonald has eight points and 71 hits, but has played just 17 games. Donovan has played just nine games, and none since the first week of January. And Boulton has just five games under his belt despite nearly 1400 career PIMs.
Mar 13 - 6:29 PM

Colin McDonald will be a healthy scratch for the Islanders Monday night against the Maple Leafs.

With Tyler Kennedy making his Islander debut Monday, McDonald will be the odd man out after playing in 15 straight games. The 30-year-old winger has picked up two goals and eight points in 17 games.
Mar 9 - 5:19 PM

Colin McDonald had two assists in a 5-1 victory over Arizona Tuesday night.

McDonald has two goals and eight points in 12 contests in 2014-15. He's making it hard for the Islanders to send him back to the minors once they start getting healthy.
Feb 25 - 10:12 AM

Colin McDonald had a goal and an assist in a 3-2 win over Edmonton.

McDonald has two goals and three points in four games with the Islanders. He's spent most of the campaign in the minors and we don't expect his recent offensive success to lead to him earning a permanent spot with the team.
Feb 11 - 11:26 AM

Colin McDonald has been recalled by the New York Islanders.

The 30-year-old has no points in two games in the NHL this season. He serves as nothing more than organizational depth.
Feb 8 - 12:31 PM

Colin McDonald has been called up by the Islanders on an emergency basis.

He dressed in two games with New York in October, but hasn't played since. McDonald had 18 points in 70 matches with the Islanders last season.
Feb 2 - 11:50 AM

The New York Islanders returned forward Colin McDonald to the AHL.

JFYI as he's not a major fantasy factor.
Jan 31 - 4:20 PM

The New York Islanders have recalled Colin McDonald on an emergency basis.

McDonald was recalled due to injuries to Eric Boulton and Kyle Okposo with the Okposo injury obviously the more important one. Now with Casey Cizikas possibly out of action, the Islanders are down to 12 forwards, necessitating the recall of McDonald. The 30-year-old was the Islanders leading scorer in the AHL with 14 goals and 34 points.
Jan 31 - 9:11 AM

Colin McDonald has been placed on waivers by the New York Islanders.

McDonald has played in just two games this season. He might have gotten more playing time had the Islanders not acquired Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy before the start of the season.
Wed, Oct 22, 2014 12:40:00 PM

Colin McDonald could draw into the New York Islanders lineup for the first time this season.

McDonald had eight goals and 18 points in 70 games last season but has been a healthy scratch through the first four contests of this season, all Islander wins. He would replace the injured Mikhail Grabovski in the lineup as Grabo is out indefinitely with an upper body injury.
