Joey MacDonald

MacDonald Signs With Habs

News: The Canadiens have signed Joey MacDonald to a one-year, two-way contract, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: The 34-year-old Joey MacDonald, who saw work in 11 games with the Flames this past season, gives the Habs' organization added goaltending depth behind Carey Price and Peter Budaj.

Joey MacDonald

MacDonald Strong In Flames' Win

News: Joey MacDonald stopped all but one of the 35 shots he faced in Friday's 2-1 win over Florida.
Analysis: Joey MacDonald has ceded time the Calgary crease of late and has six wins on the season. Calgary is hardly a bastion of reliable goaltending, but players like MacDonald can be useful as spot starters on nights where there aren't many games.

Flames To Turn To MacDonald On Friday

News: Joey MacDonald will be the starter in goal for Friday's game against the Panthers, Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Joey MacDonald will receive the start for the second game of the Flames' back-to-back, with No. 1 goalie Karri Ramo earning the honors Thursday against the Lightning. With a 3.00 GAA and .908 save percentage, MacDonald doesn't make for a particularly good starting option even against the struggling Panthers.

Flames' MacDonald Stops Seven Shots In Relief

News: Joey MacDonald stopped seven of nine shots during the Flames' 6-5 loss to the Predators on Friday.
Analysis: Joey MacDonald came in midway through the second period of Friday's game. Though the Flames were only down 4-3, starter Joni Ortio had given up the four goals on just 13 shots. MacDonald ultimately gave up the game-winner and didn't really fare much better, but it wasn't like they were going to put Ortio back in. MacDonald is 4-4-1 with a 3.16 GAA and has a .881 save percentage. He'll remain in his backup role with Karri Ramo returning from a knee injury.

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald Wins In Shootout Friday

News: Joey MacDonald stopped 22 of 25 shots in regulation, one in overtime and then another three in the shootout as the Flames beat the Stars 4-3 on Friday.
Analysis: Joey MacDonald broke a three-game losing streak that dated back to November when he was seemingly exiled to the AHL after clearing waivers. The trade deadline shook things up a bit and allowed him to return, but with 13 goals allowed in his last four games, he is not a recommended fantasy pick.

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald To Make Start Friday

News: Joey MacDonald will be in goal Friday vs. the Stars, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: It's somewhat shocking that Joey MacDonald is back with the Flames after he was run out of town following a miserable showing in Calgary earlier this season, but he found his way back after the injury to Karri Ramo and the trade of Reto Berra. MacDonald will make the first start for the Flames' back-to-back while No. 1 netminder Joni Ortio handles Saturday's duties vs. Phoenix.

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald Recalled

News: Joey MacDonald was recalled from AHL Abbotsford on Wednesday, Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Joey MacDonald was thought to be exiled to the minors for good after clearing waivers back in November upon posting a rotten 3.17 GAA and .885 save percentage over seven outings, but he'll be back with the parent club following Wednesday's trade of Reto Berra. He'll be the backup to Joni Ortio for Wednesday's game against the Senators and will presumably serve in that capacity for most of the Flames' contests until Karri Ramo (knee) returns from IR.

Flames' MacDonald Clears Waivers

News: Joey MacDonald has cleared waivers and was sent down to the AHL on Sunday.
Analysis: Joey MacDonald didn't do much with his chances this season, and with Reto Berra's performance Sunday, he may not be up in Calgary again anytime soon.

11/2/2013

Joey MacDonald, G, MON

Joey MacDonald

Flames Put MacDonald On Waivers

News: The Flames have placed Joey MacDonald on waivers, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, as Joey MacDonald's struggled all year. He's 3-3-1 with a 3.16 GAA and .885 save percentage. Over his last five games, he's allowed 14 goals, and he's lost his last three decisions.

Flames' MacDonald Takes Loss In Return

News: After serving as the backup for the last three games, Joey MacDonald returned to the crease to save 18 of 22 shots during a 4-3 loss to the Red Wings on Friday.
Analysis: After struggling early on in the season, the Flames sat Joey MacDonald for three straight. However, with Karri Ramo not faring much better, MacDonald got the start against his old team. It wasn't the best of outings, as his record fell back to .500 (3-3-1) with a 3.16 GAA and just an .885 save percentage.

10/31/2013

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald Starts Thursday

News: Joey MacDonald will be in goal Friday against the Red Wings, Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: With Karri Ramo sputtering while starting the last three games in goal for the Flames, coach Bob Hartley will turn the gig back over to Joey MacDonald on Friday against his former team. Just like Ramo, MacDonald hasn't been particularly good in the opportunities he's received, so the Flames' goalie situation should remain fluid for the foreseeable future.

10/22/2013

Joey MacDonald, G, MON

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald Falls To Coyotes

News: Joey MacDonald allowed three goals on 32 shots in Tuesday's loss to Phoenix.
Analysis: Joey MacDonald is no serious team's No. 1 goalie, so one has to imagine the Flames are praying for Karri Ramo -- who played well in a win Monday -- to force his way into the starting role.

10/21/2013

Joey MacDonald, G, MON

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald Will Start Tuesday

News: Joey MacDonald will start between the pipes Tuesday against the Coyotes, Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Joey MacDonald has been off to a solid start this season with a 3-1-1 record as well as a 2.99 GAA and .891 save percentage in five games. Karri Ramo will take the start Monday and MacDonald will line up for Tuesday against the Coyotes.

Flames' MacDonald Allows Three In Loss

News: Joey MacDonald allowed three goals in Wednesday night's 3-2 loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: Joey MacDonald was perfect against the Ducks' power play, but allowed three goals on just 14 shots at even strength. He'll continue to be the Flames' number one goaltender moving forward, as he tries to avoid uncharacteristic nights like this one in the future.

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald Earns Third Win Of The Season

News: Joey MacDonald allowed two goals and made 19 saves as the Flames beat the Devils 3-2 on Friday.
Analysis: The Flames opted to stay with Joey MacDonald for this game, given their 2-0-1 record with him in net, and it proved successful once again. He didn't take a lot of shots but came up big when he needed to. He's now allowed 12 goals in four starts this season, but should continue to get the bulk of the starts in net for Calgary.

Joey MacDonald

Flames To Stick With MacDonald Friday

News: Joey MacDonald will get the start in goal Friday against the Devils, Sportsnet's Pat Steinberg reports.
Analysis: With a 2-0-1 record in Joey MacDonald's three starts, the Flames will continue to stick with the winning recipe until his luck changes. MacDonald can be viewed as the team's No. 1 goaltender for now, though his subpar 3.30 GAA and .895 save percentage make it unlikely that he keeps rolling in victories.

10/9/2013

Joey MacDonald, G, MON

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald Shines In Narrow Win

News: Joey MacDonald stopped 33 of 35 shots in Wednesday's win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: Joey MacDonald has turned in two good outings and one stinker over his three consecutive starts, which is probably enough to give him top billing over Karri Ramo atop the Flames' depth chart for now. The 33-year-old's track record is still far from impressive, however, so continue to deploy him carefully against the league's better scoring teams.

10/8/2013

Joey MacDonald, G, MON

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald In Goal Wednesday

News: Joey MacDonald will take the start in net Wednesday against the Canadiens, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Joey MacDonald is off to a productive start of the season, with a 1-0-1 record in two games despite allowing eight goals in total. The team is relatively happy with his performance so far, so he'll take his third straight start instead of Karri Ramo.

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald Lets In Five In Loss

News: Joey MacDonald gave up five goals on 28 shots in an overtime loss to the Canucks on Sunday.
Analysis: This is a poor game for Joey MacDonald, which isn't surprising given his track record. Maybe he holds off Kari Ramo for the starting job in Calgary, but there is a reason people expect the Flames to finish with the league's worst record.

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald Gets Nod Sunday

News: Joey MacDonald will get the start in goal Sunday against the Canucks.
Analysis: The Flames will stick with a winning formula after Joey MacDonald was in goal Friday for the team's 4-3 win over the Blues. MacDonald was merely adequate in stopping 26 of 29 shots, but that might be all he needs to dispatch Karri Ramo for the top goalie job for now after Ramo squandered a three-goal lead to lose Thursday's season opener.

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald Picks Up Win Friday

News: Joey MacDonald made 29 saves as the Flames downed the Blue Jackets 4-3 on Friday.
Analysis: He wasn't stellar, but Joey MacDonald held down the fort in a way Karri Ramo couldn't in Calgary's opener. There's no goalie controversy here yet, but if Ramo keeps struggling MacDonald will get more chances.

10/4/2013

Joey MacDonald, G, MON

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald Gets Start Friday

News: Joey MacDonald will be in goal Friday against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: After Karri Ramo coughed up a three-goal lead Thursday and ultimately lost in a shootout, coach Bob Hartley will turn to Joey MacDonald. Ramo still seems to be perched atop the depth chart on the virtue of his excellent work the last four seasons in the KHL, but MacDonald could make things more interesting with a solid performance Friday.

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald Gets Backup Spot

News: Joey MacDonald will start the season as the backup to Karri Ramo, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Joey MacDonald had an outside shot at the starting spot, but Ramo turned up his play at the end of the preseason. MacDonald will get his fair share of starts, however, as Ramo is still unproven at the NHL level.

9/12/2013

Joey MacDonald, G, MON

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald Has Shot At Starting Spot

News: Joey MacDonald and Karri Ramo are the early frontrunners for the starting goalie position, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Joey MacDonald is a career backup, so he is undoubtedly looking forward to the opportunity to start. He had an 8-9-1 record with a 2.87 goals against average in splitting time with Miikka Kiprusoff in 2012-13, and may have an early inside track as Ramo hasn't played in an NHL game for a while. We'll keep you posted as to who has the advantage as camp progresses.

Joey MacDonald

Flames' MacDonald Suffering From Dehydration

News: Joey MacDonald received dehydration treatment after Friday's game and is apparently feeling fine as of Saturday morning, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Perhaps it was just the intensity of the 38-shot barrage that had Joey MacDonald feeling ill, but all tests for more serious issues all came back negative. He will return to Calgary as the Flames are packing it in for the season.
