The native of McKinney, Texas recorded two points in each of three Kings wins on home ice and factored in the 3 Stars each game. Donaldson scored twice and was 3rd Star in a 7-1 win over Nanaimo to open his week. He followed that with two more goals, including the game-winner, in a 5-3 victory over Vernon where he was 1st Star and he wrapped his week with another 1st Star after a double-overtime game-winning goal plus a helper in a 3-2 defeat of Victoria.

Donaldson, committed to Cornell for next season, had five goals and an assist for the week to move up into fourth in Kings scoring.
