Prior to Russell signing him in Germany, he led the Aalborg Pirates in scoring with 26 goals and 31 assists in 44 games playing in the top Danish league.

Originally from London, Ontario, MacDonald played 5 years in major junior, first with the Barrie Colts then with the Peterborough Petes of the OHL. 

Head Coach Pete Russell is pleased to be reunited with MacDonald. He spoke about this latest signing:

“Josh is a great guy, a really skilled player who can create offence with or without the puck.

“He can make plays and has a great shot. Outside his offensive capabilities he is also responsible defensively and a team first guy.

“I am very pleased to bring him to Cardiff, I know first-hand what kind of player he is and what he can bring to a team.”
