Avs recall Jacob MacDonald from Eagles



Just in to the CHN news bureau: Jacob MacDonald has been recalled by the Avalanche from the Colorado Eagles. He will join the team in Ottawa, where the Avs play the Senators tomorrow.

MacDonald did a lot of good things in his previous stint with the Avs, much of which was spent as a forward. MacDonald’s call-up is an obvious sign that Bo Byram may be on the shelf for an extended stay again, as the rookie did not play in Thursday’s game in Montreal because of a “head-related” injury.

In 12 games for the Eagles, MacDonald had one goal and seven points, with 19 penalty minutes.

With Ryan Murray also out to injury, I expect we might MacDonald play some at defense, although he might interchange some with Kurtis MacDermid as both a blueliner and a forward. MacDermid played on defense last night.

The Avs did not practice today, nor did they have any media availability. So, there are no new updates on either Byram or goalie Darcy Kuemper, who is out with an upper-body injury.

With all due respect Dater….. we literally just heard yesterday either one can be out for days, weeks, to a month… are we really concerned there are no new updates a day later… at one point gotta give the injury updates a rest

Yan Girard

Good new! I like well MacDonald. Good speed. That will give a rest at MacDermid. I don’t have nothing against MacDermid but seriously it doesn’t make sense, he isn’t a caliber player NHL.

Cal G

He is an enforcer. Not sure what the Avs are trying to do with him.

Bob Neal

Yan, we are in agreement.


MacDermid works better as a 4th line wing, but only in games where we might need some dirty work done.

Yan Girard

The problem is that MacDermid don’t have the speed to play in NHL. Every time that MacDermid is on the ice, the Avs is vulnerable at odd man rush whatever if MacDermid plays as defenseman or forward. It’s less worse if MacDermid plays as forward but the risk is too big nevertheless.

Bob Neal

Bo needs to play more under control if he is going to have a lengthy career. It would be a shame for a kid with so much talent to see his career significantly shortened.
