The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed free agent left wing Craig MacDonald to a one-year contract and re-signed center Derek MacKenzie to a two-year contract, club General Manager Scott Howson announced today. Both are two-way NHL-American Hockey League contracts and keeping with club policy, terms of the contracts were not disclosed.
MacDonald, 31, registered two goals and nine assists for 11 points and 16 penalty minutes in 65 games with the Tampa Bay Lightning last season, setting career highs in assists, points and games played. He was nominated for the Bill Masterton Trophy, awarded annually to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.

An update on center Craig MacDonald, who had to leave Thursday’s game after being hit in the mouth with a wrist shot from Maple Leafs defenseman Hal Gill.
The team said on Friday MacDonald lost nine teeth, five cleanly while four were shaved in half. He received numerous stitches to his tongue and the inside of his lower lip, and a few more on his chin.
As if that weren’t enough, Friday morning he needed three root canals.
Amazing that given all that damage he skated himself off the ice. He’s a hockey player.
