The Canadiens called up goaltender Joey MacDonald from the Hamilton Bulldogs on Friday.
MacDonald, a nine-year NHL veteran, has won six of his 16 games in Hamilton this season. He was called up previously for one game in December to back up starting goaltender Carey Price.
Price is day to day (upper-body).
MacDonald, a Nova Scotia native, has registered 44 wins in 133 career NHL games with the Detroit Red Wings, New York Islanders, Calgary Flames, Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins.
