The Islander defenseman has spent a majority of the 2014-15 season watching the games, rather than playing in them. Donovan has only suited up for nine of the Isles 70 games this year. The Isles upgraded defense and depth has not given Donovan too many opportunities to get back in the lineup when injuries on the back end have occurred.
"I think we have a great defensive core," Donovan said. "There's a reason I haven't been playing a lot and that's because we have a lot of great defensemen. They've been playing well."
