Judique’s Andrew MacDonald isn’t the only native of the Quad Counties taking part in the first round of the NHL playoffs.
Linesman Matt MacPherson, of Antigonish, got the call to move on to officiate the opening round.
The league has 34 full-time linesmen during the regular season; 20 get picked to go to the first round.
MacPherson, who worked the opening round for the first time in 2014, returned in 2016.
He officiated the first and second rounds, as well as the conference finals last season.
