The Detroit Red Wings
on Monday re-signed backup goaltender Joey MacDonald
to a two-year contract.
The Wings announced the signing via their Twitter account; no financial terms were disclosed.
MacDonald, 31, played 15 games for the Wings last season, going 5-5-3 with a 2.58 goals-against average, a .917 save percentage and one shutout. He also went 10-9-1 in 20 appearances for Detroit's AHL farm team in Grand Rapids before being called up when Chris Osgood
went down with a groin injury.

and Toronto before returning to Detroit last summer. MacDonald has a career mark of 23-43-12, with a 3.19 GAA, a save percentage of .902 and two shutouts.
