The Detroit Red Wings today announced the signing of goaltender Joey MacDonald to a two-year contract. Full details to follow regarding salary….It’s $550K at the NHL level, $105K at the AHL.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: I don’t consider this signing as MacDonald taking over the backup role behind Jimmy Howard, as they’re apparently still considering either re-signing Chris Osgood or another UFA, perhaps Ty Conklin, for the backup role.
