Canadiens reassign Joey MacDonald to the AHL
The Montreal Canadiens assigned goaltender Joey MacDonald to the American Hockey League’s Hamilton Bulldogs.
The transaction likely means Carey Price, who was listed as day-to-day with an upper body injury, will be good to go TUesday when the Canadiens play host to the Nashville Predators.
Price is 23-10-2 in 35 games this season to go along with a 2.19 G.A.A. and a .927 save percentage.
MacDonald, 34, is 6-7-3 while posting a 2.96 G.A.A. and a .902 save percentage in 16 AHL games this season.
