News: McDonald gathered two assists in Tuesday's 5-1 trouncing of the Coyotes.
Impact: McDonald's surprising play has turned what was expected to be a brief stay with the Islanders into a permanent deployment with the big club. Though he sees only limited minutes by virtue of assuming a bottom-six role, McDonald has piled up two goals and six assists in 10 games, while also serving as a strong source of hits.
