MacDonald (lower-body) expects to play on Tuesday.
MacDonald missed Saturday’s game in Florida with a lower-body injury, but is expected to play Tuesday vs. the Red Wings. MacDonald has three assists, 15 shots and 37 blocked shots in 13 games with the Flyers this season.
The Flyers have recalled Andrew MacDonald from Lehigh Valley (AHL).
With Luke Schenn out for the next two weeks and Radko Gudas suspended for one more game, the Flyers needed a defenseman, so they've recalled MacDonald. The 29-year-old has 13 points (1G / 12A) in 23 games with Lehigh Valley this season.
The Flyers have placed defenseman Andrew MacDonald on waivers.
MacDonald is owed $25.75M over the next five years and if he clears waivers and is sent to the AHL, he will represent over $4M in dead cap space. After a breakout 2013-14 season, MacDonald has struggled since being traded and re-signing with the Flyers—he has just two goals and 14 assists (16 points) in 77 games with Philly.
MacDonald served as a healthy scratch on Thursday, but with Nicklas Grossmann out with an upper-body injury, MacDonald was paired with Mark Streit in practice on Friday. Expect him to skate there tomorrow if Grossmann is out.
MacDonald missed the last month with a lower-body injury. He will be back in the lineup tonight with Michael Del Zotto coming out. MacDonald will likely be paired with Luke Schenn, who is also returning tonight. He has one goal and two assists in seven games this season.
MacDonald was on the ice for the morning skate but still won’t be in the lineup tonight vs. the Rangers. He has been out since October 22nd, but is listed as questionable for tomorrow’s game vs. the Wild.
MacDonald (lower-body) will be back in the next 10 days.
MacDonald was expected to start skating on his own on Tuesday, but he still was not back on the ice on Wednesday. MacDonald may have suffered a setback, but GM Ron Hextall noted today that they’ll have MacDonald back in the blue line in 10 days or so. He has been sidelined since October 22nd.
MacDonald will miss four weeks with a lower-body injury.
MacDonald must have suffered the injury on Wednesday vs. the Penguins, but he played 21:25 so that is not for sure. This a a tough break for the Flyers, who found out Braydon Coburn will miss an additional four weeks as well. The Flyers do not have an extra defenseman on the roster at this time, so expect a call-up this afternoon.
