Ducks get MacDonald from Leafs

The Anaheim Ducks have acquired goaltender Joey MacDonald from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for a seventh-round selection in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

MacDonald, 30, has split the 2009-10 season with the Maple Leafs and the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League. In six contests with the Maple Leafs, MacDonald went 1-4-0 with a 3.20 goals-against average and .892 save percentage. He shared a 3-0 shutout with Jonas Gustavsson on Dec. 1 at Montreal, turning away all 18 shots he faced.

In 31 contests with the Marlies this season, MacDonald has gone 11-17-3 with a 3.28 GAA and .887 SV%.

MacDonald will remain with the Marlies following today’s trade.

MacDonald has appeared in 72 contests with Detroit, Boston, the N.Y. Islanders and Toronto and has posted an 18-38-9 record with a 3.30 GAA and .900 SV%, recording one shutout.

In 233 career AHL contests, the Pictou, N.S., native has gone 115-93-12 with a 2.58 GAA and 19 shutouts. In 2002-03, MacDonald received the Harry “Hap” Holmes Memorial Award with teammate Marc Lamothe for the lowest team GAA in the AHL with Grand Rapids.
