Earlier on Wednesday, the American Hockey League announced the 2019-20 AHL First and Second All-Star Teams, as voted by AHL coaches, players and media in each of the league's 31 member cities. Colorado Eagles defenseman Jacob MacDonald was selected as a member of the AHL Second All-Star Team after leading all AHL defensemen with 16 goals and finishing fourth with 42 points in 56 games for Colorado this season, earning his second All-Star Team selection in three years.

A 27-year-old native of Portland, Oregon, MacDonald placed second on the Eagles in scoring and scored seven goals on the power play, tied for the most among league blueliners. MacDonald was acquired by Colorado in a trade with Florida on June 29, 2019, and recently signed a two-year extension with the Avalanche through 2021-22.
