Player Bio

With Melbourne missing Jesse Hogan and Max Gawn for big parts of last season, McDonald acted as a swingman when the club needed a target up forward. Moved into attack with great success at times, kicking 19 goals in a purple patch between rounds 12 and 20. Booted a career-high five goals – including the match-winner in stunning circumstances – to lead the Demons to a memorable three-point win over West Coast in round 14. Shifted down back later in the season, but the Demons know he can play at either end. Was on a modified program until Christmas after surgery on both ankles.

Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 9; career votes 9.
