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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
