Philadelphia Flyers buy out Andrew MacDonald

June 15 is the first day on the hockey calendar on which teams can put in motion plans to buy a player out of his existing contract, and Chuck Fletcher decided that he was going to waste as little time as possible to do just that with the Flyers’ clear most obvious buyout candidate.
