The Calgary Flames have announced that they’ve signed veteran defenseman Andrew McDonald to a professional tryout (PTO) contract.

Check it out:


The 32 year old McDonald was recently bought out of his contract by the Philadelphia Flyers, with whom he played the past five seasons with. 

McDonald, a left-shooting, stay at home defenseman, will now try to compete for a job on a crowded blue line that features Mark Giordano, Noah Hanifin and rookie Juuso Valimaki on the left-side. Working in McDonald’s favour however is the fact that Valimaki is sidelined indefinitely after suffering an injury during offseason training.
