It was only a little more than eight months ago that Jacob MacDonald wondered if he’d even have an NHL career to continue, forget about just with the Colorado Avalanche. After a Dec. 12 hit from Florida’s Ryan Lomberg that resulted in a serious concussion and him having to be stretchered off the ice, MacDonald had reason to worry.

He couldn’t remember anything from the hit itself and described the following days as a “blur.” On July 10th, MacDonald signed a new two-year contract with the Avalanche, one with a $762,000 cap hit at the NHL level and $450,000 per year, guaranteed, at the AHL level. Last month, he was on the ice at Amalie Arena, lifting the Stanley Cup over his head. Life has become very good again for Jacob MacDonald, and his enthusiasm is evident over the phone in a conversation with Colorado Hockey Now.

Not the least of which: he and his wife, Stefannie, are expecting their first child.
