Isles place McDonald on waivers

7 Comments

The New York Islanders have placed forward Colin McDonald on waivers.

McDonald, 30, has appeared in two games this season, registering no points. He played 70 games in 2013-14, scoring eight times with 10 assists.

McDonald is a pending unrestricted free agent with a cap hit of $637,500.

No word yet what the Isles intend to do with McDonald should he clear waivers, but an eventual assignment to AHL Bridgeport would be a good guess.

The Islanders have one forward, Michael Grabner (sports hernia surgery), on injured reserve. Based on the original estimate of 4-6 weeks, he’s expected to be out a few weeks longer.
