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.
