Colin McDonald is embracing his new role. The Islanders right wing has dressed for eight different teams in three leagues over the last five years, including three different stints in the National Hockey League. In that time, he’d led the AHL in goals one year, led another team in assists and scored his first NHL goal in just his second game in 2009-10 with Edmonton. But coming into this season, McDonald discovered a new role that would help him finally break through to make an impact at the NHL level.
