Marlies’ MacIntyre Named AHL Player Of The Week

The American Hockey League has named Toronto Marlies goalie Drew MacIntyre as its CCM Player of the Week. MacIntyre went 2-0-0 last week with a 0.97 goals against average and a .965 save percentage. He made 55 saves on the 57 shots he faced in those two starts.

MacIntyre was named second star after posting 27 saves in the Marlies 2-1 win over the Rochester Americans last Wednesday. He followed that up by making 19 saves during the third period and overtime against the Binghamton Senators on Sunday to get the Marlies to the shootout. From there, MacIntyre stopped four of the five Senator shootout attempts to give Toronto a 2-1 win.

With James Reimer’s injury causing Jussi Rynnas to be called up to the Toronto Maple Leafs, MacIntyre has been thrust into action down with the Marlies. In five starts he has posted a 3-1-1 record with a 1.17 goals against and a .948 save percentage. MacIntyre ranks 19th all-time in AHL victories with 153 and has appeared in four National Hockey League games with the Vancouver Canucks and Buffalo Sabres.
