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.
