Wings re-sign Joey MacDonald
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.

The Wings signed MacDonald as a free agent in 2001, and he made his NHL debut with Detroit in 2006-07, going 1-5-1 in eight games. He played for Boston, the New York Islanders 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.
Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
