Lowell MacDonald, Jr., suspended from his job as producer of FSN Pittsburgh telecasts of Penguins game last season, will return to that position in 2010-11.

MacDonald attended the Penguins' practice at the Consol Energy Center today and confirmed that he will again serve as producer.

He was suspended in January, after failing to make officials at the NHL's war room in Toronto aware that a video replay existed that showed the puck crossing the goalie line on a possible shorthanded score by Simon Gagne of Philadelphia.

The on-ice ruling that Gagne's goal should not count was not overturned because of inconclusive evidence. Had the replay in question been shown before the final decision was made, the goal would have counted.

The Flyers won the game, 7-4.

After an investigation, FSN suspended MacDonald indefinitely, a punishment that carried through the balance of the season.
