Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Doug MacDonald
Doug MacDonald was a left-winger who spent parts of three seasons with the Buffalo Sabres in the early 90s. Although he was unable to land a full time NHL position, the slick forward was a fine goal scorer in college and the minors.

Born in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan, MacDonald was chosen 77th overall by the Buffalo Sabres in 1988-89 after scoring 23 goals as a freshman for the University of Wisconsin. He returned for three more years with the Badgers then scored 25 times for the AHL's Rochester Americans in 1992-93. That year he also received a five game look with the Sabres and notched his first NHL goal.

Over the next two seasons Macdonald topped the 20-goal mark in the AHL and was recalled briefly by Buffalo. In 1995-96 he began his first of three straight years with Cincinnati Cyclones of the IHL. MacDonald was a solid two-way worker for the club but was not recalled to the NHL. In 1999 he moved to Germany and suited up for the Cologne Sharks and Essen Mosquitos.
