McDonald returns for second stint in Indy

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indy Fuel, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks and the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs announced today that they have re-signed defenseman Connor McDonald to a standard player contract for the 2020-21 season.

McDonald, 24, re-signs with the Fuel after playing 11 games during the 2019-20 season. Signing a contract with Indy in early January, McDonald earned one goal, three assists and two penalty minutes. After graduating from Bowling Green State University, the 6-foot-1, 181-pound defenseman signed an amateur tryout agreement with the Ontario Reign in April 2019 but did not appear in any games. 

A native of Westerville, Ohio, McDonald played four seasons at Bowling Green, appearing in 161 NCAA games and registering seven goals, 25 assists and a plus-40 rating. Prior to his college career, McDonald played two seasons in the United States Hockey League (USHL), skating in 114 games with the Chicago Steel and Youngstown Phantoms.
