Predators sign AHL All-Star goaltender MacIntyre

The Nashville Predators, parent club of the AHL’s Milwaukee Admirals, announced on Tuesday that the club has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with free agent goaltender Drew MacIntyre.

MacIntyre has spent the majority of the past two seasons with the Vancouver Canucks’ primary developmental affiliate, the AHL’s Manitoba Moose.

He went 25-18-2 with a 2.32 in 46 games for the Moose in 2007-08 and was the winning goaltender in the 2008 AHL All-Star Game. The 25-year-old was named a Second-Team AHL All-Star near the end of the regular season.

MacIntyre made AHL history this past Feb. 20, becoming just the ninth goaltender in the league’s 72-year history to be credited with scoring a goal, and it was the game-winner in a 2-1 overtime victory over the Chicago Wolves.

A native of Charlottetown, P.E.I., MacIntyre also saw the first NHL action of his career in 2007-08, making two relief appearances for the Canucks.

Originally drafted by Detroit in 2001, the 6-1, 184-pound MacIntyre has amassed a 64-42-4 record in 124 career AHL appearances with Grand Rapids and Manitoba.
