After its career junior at the Tigers de Medicine Hat, McDonald is selected in first round, 4th on the whole by the Maple Leafs of Toronto during the Repêchage amateur of the LNH 1973 (it was chosen at the same time by the Crusaders of Cleveland of the Worldwide association of hockey in first round, 10th on the whole, of the Repêchage amateur of the AMH 1973). Its professional path starts as of 1973 and will extend until in 1989, where, with the Flames of Calgary, it gains the Coupe Stanley at its last season.
Recognized like before robust, it marked a memorable goal in prolongation (with a fractured wrist and broken nose) for Leafs during the series of 1978 which eliminated the Islanders from New York of the quarter-of-finale. Its exchange in Rockies in the middle of the following season was one of the most criticized exchanges former owner Harold Ballard, who saw also Darryl Sittler and Rick Vaive to leave Leafs.
McDonald is also known for the season (1982-83) during which it remained for one substantial period in the race under the markers with Wayne Gretzky. It counted 66 goals this season, unusual fact because it is rare that a player obtains more goals than of master keys, and also because it is the greatest number of goals ever marked into one season by a player which does not reach the plate of the 100 points (it stopped to 98). Local Héro with Calgary where it brought the Stanley Cut, it is very largely recognized for its famous " moustache of Morse " who was often caricatured, in particular by Dave Elston of the Calgary Sun.
