Lowell MacDonald began his career with the Detroit Red Wings organization during the Original Six era. First getting into an NHL game in 1961-62, MacDonald played but 46 games over four seasons with the Wings before he was traded to Toronto in a blockbuster deal.

On May 20, 1965, Parker MacDonald was sent to the Leafs along with Marcel Pronovost, Larry Jeffrey, Eddie Joyal, and Aut Erickson for Andy Bathgate, Billy Harris, and Gary Jarrett. MacDonald, however, never stepped on the ice at Maple Leaf Gardens, and was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1967 expansion draft.

Playing regularly, MacDonald showed the scoring touch he had exhibited in junior. But during the Kings' training camp in Barrie, Ontario prior to the 1969-70 season, he packed his suitcase and retired, citing a manic fear of flying. After much of the season had expired, the Kings were able to convince him to report to their AHL affiliate in Springfield.

That summer, Pittsburgh claimed him from the Kings, but early into the 1970-71 season, MacDonald damaged his knee and was sidelined for virtually two seasons. The surgeries and rest did his knee a world of good, and he joined the Penguins for 1972-73, enjoying an outstanding season and winning the Masterton Trophy for his perseverance and dedication to hockey. But after four strong seasons, he injured his shoulder, and MacDonald struggled through two more painful seasons, retiring after 1977-78.
