Tony MacDonald

Tony MacDonaldDirector of Amateur Scouting

Tony MacDonald is in his ninth season as the Hurricanes’ director of amateur scouting and his 22nd season as a scout with the organization. MacDonald oversees the Hurricanes’ amateur scouting department and is responsible for the team’s annual draft.

MacDonald has been a part of the Hurricanes scouting staff that has selected many of the players that form the core of the current team. He was on staff when Carolina selected Eric Staal and Cam Ward, and was director of the amateur scouting department for the 2011 NHL Draft, when the team chose Jeff Skinner, who won the Calder Trophy the following spring. Other players added to the organization during MacDonald’s first seven drafts as director of amateur scouting from 2008 through 2014 include Justin Faulk, Victor Rask, Noah Hanifin, Ryan Murphy, Elias Lindholm and Haydn Fleury.

MacDonald began his hockey career as a coach and general manager for the Rockland Remparts and Brockville Braves of the CJHL. He spent time as a coach in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) for the Windsor Spitfires and Guelph Storm before beginning his scouting career with the Cornwall Royals and Kitchener Rangers. In 1982, MacDonald accepted a position as director of scouting for Windsor. He then spent two seasons as the first general manager for the OHL’s Detroit expansion team, beginning in 1990. Over the course of his OHL career, MacDonald’s teams appeared in the Memorial Cup five times, earning championships in 1980 (Cornwall) and 1982 (Kitchener).

MacDonald first joined the NHL in 1988, accepting a scouting position with the Los Angeles Kings. After two seasons with the Kings, he returned to the OHL as an advisor with the Guelph Storm. He also worked with the NHL’s four-team scouting combine, which included Dallas, Winnipeg, Hartford and Philadelphia, before joining Hartford full-time. MacDonald was inducted into the Brockville Braves Hall of Fame in 1986, the Glengarry Sports Hall of Fame in 2007 and the Brockville Area Sports Hall of Fame in 2008.
