Top Jacob MacDonald News

  • Avalanche's Jacob MacDonald: Returns to Mile High City

    MacDonald (undisclosed) signed a two-year, $1.55 million contract with Colorado on Monday, according to PuckPedia.

    MacDonald provided seven goals, two assists, 49 shots on net and 40 hits in 34 regular-season contests with the Sharks in 2023-24. The 31-year-old has played three of his first five years with the Avalanche, so he should be familiar with the organization. He missed San Jose's final three games because of an injury but should be available for training camp. MacDonald could see playing time in a depth capacity as a forward or a defenseman in 2024-25.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Snaps goal drought

    MacDonald scored a goal in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Flames.

    MacDonald converted on a pass from Mike Hoffman at 2:22 of the second period. The 31-year-old MacDonald snapped a 15-game goal drought dating back to Dec. 23 -- he's missed time both due to injury and as a healthy scratch in that span and also spent a stint with AHL San Jose. The winger/defenseman has seven goals, two assists, 49 shots on net, 39 hits and a minus-14 rating through 33 appearances this season.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Generates helper in loss

    MacDonald registered an assist in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Lightning.

    MacDonald was expected to be scratched initially, but Mike Hoffman (upper body) wasn't able to suit up. The helper was MacDonald's first point since his goal Dec. 23 versus the Canucks. The winger/defenseman is up to eight points, 48 shots on net, 38 hits, 21 PIM and a minus-13 rating through 28 appearances this season, matching his point total form 58 contests a year ago.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Playing Saturday

    MacDonald (illness) will return to the lineup versus Columbus on Saturday, according to Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now.

    MacDonald was a late scratch Thursday in Pittsburgh, forcing the Sharks to play with only five healthy defensemen. The 31-year-old veteran saw plenty of action as a fourth-line forward earlier in the campaign and has seven points (six goals) in 24 games this season. He is expected to line up alongside Calen Addison on the third pairing Saturday.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Sidelined Thursday

    MacDonald (illness) won't be in the lineup Thursday versus the Penguins, Max Miller of The Hockey News reports.

    MacDonald has played in the last two games since he was called up last Friday. The 31-year-old was playing on defense after seeing time as a forward earlier in the year. His absence, combined with Jan Rutta (lower body) being out, leaves the Sharks with just five healthy blueliners for the contest. MacDonald's next chance to play is Saturday versus the Blue Jackets.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Recalled Friday

    MacDonald was summoned from AHL San Jose on Friday, per the AHL's transaction list.

    MacDonald has four assists in six contests with AHL San Jose in 2023-24. He has also collected six goals and seven points in 22 appearances with the Sharks.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Hits waivers

    MacDonald was put on waivers Tuesday, according to Chris Johnston of The Athletic.

    MacDonald has been a versatile player for the Sharks this season, seeing playing time at forward and on defense. He has registered six goals, one assist and 34 shots on net over 22 appearances in 2023-24.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Removed from IR

    MacDonald (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Monday, Max Miller of The Hockey News reports.

    Mario Ferraro (lower body) was moved to injured reserve in a corresponding move. MacDonald, who hasn't been in the lineup since Dec. 23 against Vancouver, will be an option to play Tuesday versus Seattle. He has six goals, one assist, 31 shots on net and 14 hits in 17 appearances this campaign.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Remains out Saturday

    MacDonald (lower body) won't be activated from IR for Saturday's game versus Buffalo, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    It'll be the 15th game MacDonald's missed since he was placed on injured reserve Dec. 27. The 30-year-old blueliner has six goals and seven points in 17 contests this season. MacDonald's next chance to suit up will come Tuesday against the Kraken.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Questionable for Saturday

    MacDonald (lower body) might be available to play Saturday versus Buffalo, according to Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News.

    MacDonald has six goals, seven points and 21 PIM in 17 contests while averaging 11:54 of ice time. There's no guarantee MacDonald will draw into the lineup once he's healthy.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Could return before break

    MacDonald (lower body) could return prior to the All-Star break, Max Miller of The Hockey News reports.

    MacDonald has missed the last 13 games with his lower-body issue, but it sounds like he could be ready to return before the end of January. He's picked up six goals and seven points through 17 contests this season.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Not close to returning

    MacDonald (lower body) skated Saturday but is a ways away from playing, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    MacDonald was last in the lineup Dec. 23. He has six goals, seven points, 21 PIM, 14 hits and nine blocks in 17 appearances this season. MacDonald might slot into the third pairing once he's healthy, but it also wouldn't be surprising to see him spend time in the press box as a healthy scratch.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: On injured reserve

    MacDonald (undisclosed) was put on injured reserve Wednesday, per Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News.

    MacDonald last played Saturday, so this move is presumably retroactive to that date, which would make him eligible to return Sunday versus Colorado. The 30-year-old defenseman has six goals and seven points in 17 contests this campaign. The Sharks might compensate for MacDonald's absence by dressing Calen Addison (lower body) versus LA on Wednesday if he's able to return or Henry Thrun if Addison remains unavailable.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Deposits goal

    MacDonald scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Canucks.

    MacDonald got the Sharks within a goal in the third period, but they got no closer. The 30-year-old has tallied twice over the last four contests after sitting two games as a healthy scratch. He's bounced around between a bottom-six forward role and a third-pairing role on defense based on the personnel the Sharks have available for any given game. MacDonald is at six goals -- double what he had over his first four NHL campaigns combined -- with one assist, 31 shots on net, 14 hits, 21 PIM and a minus-10 rating through 17 outings.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Spoils shutout bid

    MacDonald scored a power-play goal on three shots and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Kings.

    MacDonald broke up David Rittich's shutout bid with a goal at 18:41 of the third period. The 30-year-old MacDonald had been scratched in a couple of recent games, and he was ejected early in his last outing Sunday versus the Avalanche. He returned to defense Tuesday after spending much of the season as a winger, filling in on the third pairing with Calen Addison (lower body) and Jan Rutta (illness) out. MacDonald has five goals, one assist, 26 shots on net, 21 PIM and a minus-9 rating over 15 appearances.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Tallies twice Friday

    MacDonald scored a pair of goals on three shots in Friday's 6-3 win over the Devils.

    MacDonald had been held off the scoresheet in six games since returning from an undisclosed injury. The 30-year-old continues to be deployed as a forward for the Sharks, though his bottom-six role in a weak offense negates any fantasy benefit from his potential multi-position eligibility. MacDonald has three goals, one assist, 16 shots on net, nine hits and a minus-8 rating through nine appearances so far.

  • Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Ready to rock

    MacDonald (undisclosed) will be activated from injured reserve ahead of his return to the lineup Monday against Vancouver, per Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now.

    MacDonald is projected to play as a fourth-line forward in the contest. He has produced one goal, one assist, six shots on net and two blocked shots over two appearances this season.
