Andrew MacDonald and Carlo Colaiacovo will be scratched on Saturday night against the New York Rangers.

It's been a disappointing season for both veteran defenders. Colaiacovo has appeared in just 15 games without making much of a fantasy impact. Meanwhile MacDonald has just 11 points, 30 hits, 35 PIMs, and 63 blocks through 46 games this season.
Feb 28 - 6:52 PM

Andrew MacDonald is expected to be back in the Flyers lineup Saturday.

MacDonald has been a disappointment this season as he has only two goals and 11 points this season and has been a healthy scratch in each of the Flyers last three games. He will replace Luke Schenn in the lineup.
Feb 21 - 8:43 AM

Andrew MacDonald and Carlo Colaiacovo will be scratched against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night.

There simply is no fantasy value to speak of here as Colaiacovo has just 15 games to his name this season, and MacDonald's one skill, blocking shots, has fallen off. He has just 58 blocks in 42 games this season.
Feb 17 - 6:28 PM

Andrew MacDonald will be a healthy scratch in Sunday's game against Buffalo.

MacDonald didn't play in Philadelphia's last game because of the death of his grandmother and he won't be back in the lineup tonight. Carlo Colaiacovo and Zac Rinaldo will also watch Sunday's game from the press box.
Feb 15 - 7:27 PM

Andrew MacDonald is expected back in the lineup on Sunday after missing Friday's game due to the death of his grandmother.

MacDonald has only two goals and nine assists in 42 games this season. His fantasy value is minimal at best.
Feb 14 - 10:53 AM

Andrew MacDonald's grandmother has passed away.

MacDonald will understandably not attend Friday's game. Instead, Carlo Colaiacovo is likely to remain in the lineup despite the return of Luke Schenn (upper body). We would like to extend our condolences to MacDonald and his family.
Feb 13 - 5:18 PM

Andrew MacDonald is expected back in the Flyer's lineup on Saturday.

MacDonald was a healthy scratch on Thursday. He has only two goals and seven assists this season in 29 games and it was the second time this season that he has missed a game despite being healthy. Get him in your lineup if you normally would but we cannot imagine that being a viable option unless you are in an extremely deep pool.
Jan 10 - 10:57 AM

Andrew MacDonald scored his second of the season and added an assist in the Flyers 5-2 loss to New Jersey Saturday.

MacDonald has only nine points this season and has been a healthy scratch on one occasion. MacDonald had 28 points last season but may struggle to get to the 20 point mark in 2014-15.
Jan 4 - 8:43 AM

Andrew MacDonald will play in Tuesday's game against San Jose.

There was some speculation that MacDonald would spend a second straight game in the press box. With Vincent Lecavalier being listed as a healthy scratch, it looks like the Flyers opted against having a total of $9.5 million in cap space merely watching the game.

Andrew MacDonald will probably be a healthy scratch again on Tuesday.

That's based on the fact that MacDonald was skating on the fourth defensive pairing during Monday's practice. He's in the first year of his six-year, $30 million contract.

Flyers coach Craig Berube is looking for more out of Andrew MacDonald.

MacDonald, who comes with a $5 million annual cap hit through 2019-20, was a healthy scratch on Saturday. "I talked to Mac about his play lately and we both agreed that he's got to play better," Berube said. "He hasn't moved the puck as well as he has. His intensity has dropped off. So we talked about a couple times and I wanted him to watch a game and think about things. He's a good player. We need him to be a good player for us." Berube is desperately trying to turn the Flyers season around, but so far his efforts have been in vein as Philadelphia is 1-7-1 in its last nine games.

Andrew MacDonald was a healthy scratch on Saturday.

This has to be a surprise as MacDonald was considered to be a top-four defenseman for the Flyers heading into the season. He has only a goal and three points in 12 games this season. He was joined in the press box by Carlo Colaiacovo and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare.

Andrew MacDonald (knee) participated in Monday's practice.

MacDonald is projected to return to the Flyers' lineup before the end of the week. He might even be available on Wednesday, but he's not a safe bet for that game.
