ISLANDERS SIGN D ANDREW MacDONALD
2006 6th round pick inks 3-year deal

The Islanders have signed defensive prospect Andrew MacDonald to a three-year entry level contract. An Islanders' sixth round draft pick (160th overall) in 2006, MacDonald comes from the Moncton Wildcats of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League where he was coached by Islanders head coach Ted Nolan in the 2005-06 season.

"Andrew is a mobile defenseman with good two-way skills," said Islanders general manager Garth Snow. "He also has a history with Ted Nolan, who played a role in his development in junior. Andrew acquitted himself very well in training camp last year and we like the way he competes."

MacDonald, who will turn 21 in September, is coming off a season where he scored 14 goals and 44 assists for 58 points from the blueline for Moncton. In two seasons with the Wildcats, the 6-0, 186-pound native of Judique, Nova Scotia played in 133 games scoring 20 goals and 84 assists for 104 points and 143 penalty minutes. During the Wildcats run to the 2005 Memorial Cup Championship, MacDonald scored two goals with 11 assists for 13 points in 21 playoff games.

Following the conclusion of his 2006-07 season with Moncton, MacDonald played three games for the Islanders American Hockey League affiliate in Bridgeport.

MacDonald will join the Islanders for training camp in September, which coincidently will begin in Moncton, New Brunswick.
