John McDonald was born November 24, 1921 in Swan River, Manitoba. Nicknamed Jack, a common practice of the era, McDonald was a big, highscoring winger when he played junior with the Portage Terriers between 1939-40 and 1941-42. The 1942-43 season was spent with the Flin Flon Bombers of the Saskatchewan Senior Hockey League. The NHL was decimated by the Second World War, but no team lost as much personnel as the New York Rangers. Jack McDonald was one of several wartime additions, joining New York for the 1943-44 season. Playing in 43 NHL games, McDonald scored a respectable 10 goals, adding 9 assists. That was the end of his short-lived NHL career.
