Lehigh Valley, PA – The Philadelphia Flyers, parent club of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, have recalled from loan forward Colin McDonald.
A 31-year-old forward from Wethersfield, Connecticut, McDonald is in the midst of his ninth professional season and has registered two assists in four games with Lehigh Valley. After missing 14 games due to injury, he returned last weekend and helped guide the Phantoms to victories in two of three outings.
McDonald split last season between the New York Islanders (18 games, 2 goals, 6 assists, 8 points) and Bridgeport Sound Tigers (40 games, 14 goals, 21 assists, 35 points). He boasts 140 career NHL games on his professional resume during which he’s amassed 18 goals, 26 assists, 44 points and 66 penalty minutes.

A new era of Phantoms hockey began in the fall of 2014 when the Lehigh Valley Phantoms began play at the state-of-the-art PPL Center. Through 19 incredibly successful campaigns, the Phantoms have captured two Calder Cup Championships (1998, 2005), two Conference Championships (1998, 2005), two Regular Season Titles (1996-97, 1997-98) and four Division Championships (1996-97, 1997-98, 1998-99, 2003-04).
