Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jack McDonald
Jack McDonald's career straddled the formation of the NHL. He played four seasons with the Quebec Bulldogs of the Eastern Canada Hockey Association before joining the Quebec Bulldogs of the National Hockey Association, the precursor to the NHL, in 1910-11. After two seasons with the NHA Bulldogs, McDonald played for the Vancouver Millionaires of the PCHA in 1912-13, returning east to join the Toronto Ontarios of the NHA for the 1913-14 season. McDonald enjoyed his strongest season with the Ontarios, scoring 27 goals and 8 assists in 20 games. The following season, he was back with the Quebec Bulldogs, where he played for the next three seasons. The NHL was formed in 1917, and the Montreal Wanderers claimed McDonald in the Dispersal Draft. After 4 games, the Montreal Canadiens snatched Jack and he finished the season with that franchise. In 1918-19, McDonald again played for the Montreal Canadiens, but when the Quebec franchise returned to the NHL in 1919-20, Jack McDonald became a Bulldog once again. The Quebec franchise lasted but one season, and then moved to Hamilton. In late November, 1920, the Hamilton Tigers traded McDonald, Harry Mummery and Dave Ritchie to the Montreal Canadiens in return for Jack Coughlin and the loan of Billy Coutu. After starting the 1920-21 season in Montreal for his second foray with the Canadiens, Jack was loaned to the Tornto St. Pats for the remaining 6 games of the season. He was back in a Montreal Canadiens' uniform in 1921-22, his last before retiring.
