RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

After signing a six-year deal in the offseason to remain in Philadelphia for the foreseeable future, MacDonald looks to make a name for himself in one of the bigger hockey markets in the league. MacDonald should thrive in an environment where he can fit into his natural third- or fourth-defenseman role after carrying the weight of the Islanders' defensive woes for nearly six seasons. It will be difficult for him not to have the best year of his career, but fantasy general managers will still likely have better options available to them unless they are in an exceptionally deep league.

2013-14

MacDonald had a solid season for the Islanders last season. But like so many other defenders on the team, his offensive upside is limited - to say the least - as he only posted three goals and 12 points. He is best suited for a third pairing on defense but with the Islanders he will probably be a second pairing.

2012-13

MacDonald has proven to be a reliable second pairing defenseman for the Islanders. His numbers won't knock you out of the rink, but he is capable of scoring a few goals, posting five to go with 14 assists last year in 75 contests. On a deeper defensive teams he might be a third pairing blue liner; MacDonald could factor into deeper leagues.

2011-12

MacDonald was yet another player that was lost to the Islanders last season due to injury. He underwent hip surgery and is expected to be ready for the start of the NHL season. MacDonald should be included on the Isles' second pairing on defense, and although his offense isn't the greatest, it's not the worst, either.

2010-11

MacDonald has yet to play a full season with the Islanders, and it seems unlikely that 2010-11 will change that. The trade for James Wisniewski, and the return of Radek Martinek, means MacDonald is most likely ticketed to start the season in Bridgeport and will be called up from the AHL when injuries arise.

2009-10

MacDonald notched 32 points in 69 games for Bridgeport last season. He still needs to work on becoming a complete defenseman, so he will work on his development in Bridgeport in 2009-10.

2008-09

MacDonald is an offensively skilled defenseman who has put up decent points at nearly every level he's played in. He's not ready for the NHL as he definitely needs work on the defensive aspects of the game, but he could be a solid producer for the Isles in the coming years.

2007-08

MacDonald will join the team for training camp, but will be hard-pressed to make the team. He still needs some seasoning, so expect a year or two more in the AHL.
