Andrew MacDonald (born September 7, 1986) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing with the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

MacDonald was drafted in the sixth round, 160th overall, by the New York Islanders in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. He played junior hockey for the Moncton Wildcats of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League where he was, along with Keith Yandle, a star defenceman on the team's 2005–06 championship team. He has also played for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the Islander's AHL affiliate.

In the 2009–10 season, MacDonald scored his first NHL goal on December 17, 2009, in a 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers.[1] On February 25, 2010, MacDonald was re-signed by the Islanders to a four-year contract extension.[2]

During the final year of his contract in the 2013–14 season, MacDonald was traded by the Islanders to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for minor leaguer Matt Mangene, a second round pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, and a third-round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft on March 4, 2014.[3] The Flyers signed MacDonald to a six-year, $30 million contract extension on April 15.[4]
