There’s just no good news right now if you’re an Islander defenseman or fan of Islanders and/or defense. According to multiple reports, defender Andrew MacDonald left the ice during practice today after getting hit by a puck.
Matt Saidman, who was at practice, tweeted that MacDonald “stayed down on the ice for a couple minutes before limping off.”
The Islanders announced there will be an update on Thomas Hickey’s injury after practice. Presumably, there could also be one about MacDonald as well.
