Andrew MacDonald (lower body) appears to be ready to return to the lineup.

MacDonald has missed the last 15 games with a leg injury, but he was paired with Ivan Provorov during Sunday's practice. MacDonald might be back in the fold on Monday night versus Pittsburgh.
Nov 26 - 3:11 PM

Andrew MacDonald (lower body) took part in Monday's practice.

Unfortunately MacDonald won't be available on Tuesday and he doesn't think he'll be able to return on Wednesday either. That's unfortunate for the Flyers given that they're also now missing defenseman Radko Gudas, who received a 10-game suspension. The situation might lead to Mark Alt playing on Tuesday.
Nov 21 - 9:49 AM

The Philadelphia Flyers hope that Andrew MacDonald (lower body) is ready to go Tuesday.

MacDonald was injured almost a month ago. He is participating in practice and with Radko Gudas facing possibly a long suspension, the Flyers need MacDonald back and help steady the blueline. MacDonald has only one goal in eight games this season but the Flyers need help defensively and his return would help that cause.
Nov 19 - 9:08 AM

Andrew MacDonald (lower body) took part in Wednesday's practice.

MacDonald is getting close to returning, but he's still doubtful for Thursday's contest. "I’m not sure if that’s realistic or not, just being off for the amount of time I was off," MacDonald said. "It did feel really good, but we just have to go through the process of seeing how it feels tomorrow and go from there, make sure there’s no setbacks or anything." He last played on Oct. 21.
Nov 15 - 5:24 PM

Andrew MacDonald (lower body) is expected to skate Wednesday in Winnipeg.

If MacDonald gets back on the ice then it will be his first session since he suffered a leg injury back on Oct. 21. He hopes to be back in the lineup next Tuesday against Vancouver.
Nov 14 - 2:54 PM

According to GM Ron Hextall, Andrew MacDonald should be able to practice on Monday.

MacDonald will also accompany the team for their two-game road trip to Minnesota and Winnipeg. He has one goal in eight games this season.
Nov 11 - 6:49 PM

Andrew MacDonald (lower body) will be examined by a doctor on Friday.

Philadelphia GM Ron Hextall hopes MacDonald can resume skating next week. He has been sidelined with a lower-body injury since Oct. 22.
Nov 9 - 4:22 PM

Andrew MacDonald (lower body) has been moved to injured reserve.

MacDonald hasn't played since Oct. 21 due to a lower-body injury and he was given a timetable of four-to-six weeks to recover, so he still has a ways to go before he will be ready. He has one goal in eight appearances this year.
Oct 31 - 2:45 PM

Andrew MacDonald will be out of action for four-to-six weeks because of a lower-body injury.

MacDonald was hurt in Saturday's 2-1 win over Edmonton even though he finished the match. He posted three shots and six blocks in 22:03 of ice time.
Oct 22 - 3:38 PM

Philadelphia may look to trade Andrew MacDonald this off-season.

The Flyers' defense is getting younger and MacDonald's contract still has three years remaining with an annual cap hit of $5 million. Philadelphia could offer the Vegas Golden Knights draft picks as incentive to take MacDonald in a trade or in the expansion draft.
Jun 14 - 11:50 AM

Andy MacDonald and Nick Schultz will be scratched against the Canucks on Sunday.

It'll be the first time since Nov. 19th that MacDonald has been sat down. Through 50 games this season the veteran defender has two goals and 13 points along with 105 blocks.
Feb 19 - 3:46 PM

Look for Andrew MacDonald to be a healthy scratch on Sunday.

This has not happened since November 19 when he replaced Michael Del Zotto in the lineup but the reverse will occur on Sunday as Del Zotto, who played Thursday as their seventh defenseman, will get in as the Flyers go with the traditional six man blueline. MacDonald has two goals and 13 points in 50 games this season as he has only one point in his last 21 games.
Feb 19 - 8:15 AM

Andy MacDonald ended his 19-game point drought during Saturday's 2-1 overtime win over the Sharks.

The tally gives the veteran defender 11 assists and 13 points on the season through 48 games.
Feb 11 - 6:15 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers had just six shots on goal through 40 minutes on Tuesday.

The Flyers had 10 shots in the third period to avoid setting a new franchise-low for shots in a game, but they still lost 5-1 to the Hurricanes. "Just a real dismal effort on all fronts," said Andrew MacDonald. "We didn’t move our feet, they were all over us, we didn’t forecheck, we didn’t defend well. All around, a terrible game." That loss snapped the Flyers' three-game winning streak and brought them to 25-20-6.
