The Flyers have placed Andrew MacDonald on waivers for the purpose of a terminating his contract.

MacDonald had one year left on his six-year contract that carries a $5.0M cap-hit. His buyout will carry a $1.167M cap-hit this season and $1.917M next. Terminating MacDonald’s contract opens up a roster spot for some of the Flyers’ up-and-coming young defensemen like Samuel Morin.

MacDonald (lower-body) is ahead of schedule in his recovery.

MacDonald was originally expected to miss the first two weeks of the regular season, but GM Ron Hextall said he was progressing ahead of schedule. MacDonald doesn’t carry a lot of fantasy value, but plays a key role on the Flyers’ blueline—he averaged 19:51 TOI in 66 games last year while playing with Ivan Provorov.

MacDonald (leg) is expected to return to the Flyers blueline on Monday.

MacDonald skated on the top pair with Ivan Provorov in the Flyers practice on Sunday and it looks like he will return after missing the last 15 games with a leg injury. With MacDonald back in, Samuel Morin is expected to be a healthy scratch and could very well head back to the AHL.

MacDonald will miss 4-6 weeks with an apparent knee injury.

MacDonald suffered the injury while blocking a Milan Lucic in the third period of Saturday’s win over the Oilers. The blocked shot was his sixth of the game, but will cost him at least one month. With MacDonald out, rookie defenseman Samuel Morin could get a shot with the big club following a strong training camp.

The Flyers have placed defenseman Andrew MacDonald on waivers.

MacDonald is owed $25.75M over the next five years and if he clears waivers and is sent to the AHL, he will represent over $4M in dead cap space. After a breakout 2013-14 season, MacDonald has struggled since being traded and re-signing with the Flyers—he has just two goals and 14 assists (16 points) in 77 games with Philly.
