Kevin McDonald
Assistant General Manager

Kevin McDonald joined the Blues organization prior to the 2001-02 season as a professional scout. He scouted professional talent for the Blues for two seasons before the organization promoted him to Director of Professional Scouting in 2003. In June 2005, he was given the added responsibilities of being the General Manager of the Blues’ former American Hockey League affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen. In May, 2009, McDonald was named Assistant General Manager for the Blues.

McDonald works closely with Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong in coordinating the transfer of players and in acquiring professional hockey players. As the Director of Professional Scouting for the Blues, McDonald oversaw the professional scouting department to ensure that the organization maintained a detailed profile of every player in both the NHL and AHL, as well as a familiarity of the best players in other professional hockey leagues.

The 2013-14 season is McDonald’s 26th season working in the NHL. He began his career in professional hockey in 1988 as a member of the communications department of the New York Rangers. McDonald served in a variety of capacities in that department, including Director of Communications. Following the 1993-94 season, when the Rangers won the Stanley Cup, he moved into the Rangers’ hockey operations department and worked as an assistant to Rangers General Manager Neil Smith during the lockout-shortened 1994-95 season. From 1995 to 2001, McDonald served as a professional scout for the Rangers, traveling throughout North America and Europe to evaluate professional hockey players.

A native of Lawrence, Massachusetts, McDonald holds a master’s degree in sports management from the United States Sports Academy in Daphne, Alabama, and a bachelor’s degree in communications from Boston College. He resides in North Andover, Massachusetts, where he lives with his wife Lauren, his two children Sean and Kayleigh and his three step-children Joseph, Jenna, and Daniel.
