With Bernier injured, Leafs recalling MacIntyre, according to agent

TORONTO - In light of Jonathan Bernier's injury, goaltender Drew MacIntyre is rejoining the Toronto Maple Leafs, his agent said in an email.

MacIntyre, 30, had been back with the AHL's Toronto Marlies since Bernier returned from a five-game absence with a groin injury March 25.

Bernier left Thursday night's 4-3 overtime win over the Boston Bruins with what looked like a left leg or knee injury. Asked if Bernier re-aggravated his groin problem, coach Randy Carlyle called it only a "lower-body" injury and said the 25-year-old goaltender had an MRI scheduled.

James Reimer relieved Bernier and stopped 10-of-11 shots he faced against Boston. He's expected to shoulder the load for the rest of the season, beginning Saturday against the Winnipeg Jets, if Bernier is out.

MacIntyre made one appearance in March for the Leafs but has never started an NHL game.

His agent, Thane Campbell, confirmed MacIntyre was returning to Toronto. It was unclear if he'd be back in time for the Leafs' practice Friday morning.

The Marlies were in Utica, N.Y. for a Friday game against the Comets, the Vancouver Canucks' top minor-league affiliate.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
