A day after extending its top American Hockey League scorer in forward T.J. Tynan, the Avalanche on Friday extended the Colorado Eagles’ second-leading scorer in defenseman Jacob MacDonald.
MacDonald, who leads all AHL defensemen with 16 goals, agreed to a two-year contract through the 2021-22 season.
A former four-year defenseman at Cornell, MacDonald has 42 points in 56 games for the Eagles. He was acquired by the Avalanche last summer in a trade with Florida that sent forward Dominic Toninato to the Panthers.
MacDonald, 27, has played in two career NHL games, both with the Panthers in 2018-19.
