Flyers Prospect Having Solid Season with Northeastern

Hunter McDonald was taken by the Philadelphia Flyers in the sixth round of the 2022 NHL draft. That’s a round that is a longshot for players to reach the NHL.

But he has shown promise, and may get there some day.

When the Flyers selected him, they received a 6-foot-4, 207-pound defenseman who needed time and patience.

Translation: He will stay in college with Northeastern for two to three years.

Going to Northeastern made McDonald more attractive to draft. This is a terrific hockey program with a lot of sway. The team plays in Hockey East, and last year it had the best record in the conference. McDonald knew what he was doing.
