Predators Agree To Terms with Goaltender Drew MacIntyre
Analysis of the MacIntyre Signing
MacIntyre fits the profile the Preds have been talking about the past few weeks -- a solid veteran presence with a background of success in the AHL to bolster the team's depth in net. Very similar to the role Dan Ellis was signed to fill last summer.

"We were looking for the best available goaltender to be a No. 1 guy in Milwaukee and provide depth and minutes," goaltending coach Mitch Korn said. "In conversations with Drew, I really liked his goaltending philosophies and the attitude he displayed. He's played a little bit in the NHL with Vancouver, so if we need a recall we have a comfort level there."

MacIntyre has been a steady performer for Manitoba the past two seasons, posting a combined 49-30-4 record, 2.25 goals against average, and .921 save percentage, while ranking in the top-5 in the league in save percentage both seasons.

MacIntyre will also be looked upon  to mentor first year pro Mark Dekanich as he makes the jump from college to pro hockey.

Nashville, Tenn. (July 1, 2008) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with free-agent goaltender Drew MacIntyre.

MacIntyre, 25 (6/24/83), has spent the majority of the past two seasons with Vancouver’s primary developmental affiliate, the Manitoba Moose (AHL). In addition to posting a 25-18-2 record in 46 games with the Moose in 2007-08, the 6-1, 184-pound netminder saw the first NHL action of his career, making two relief appearances for the Canucks. The Charlottetown, P.E.I., native notched the AHL’s fifth-best save percentage (.921) in 2007-08, in addition to ranking fourth in the league in save percentage (.922) and third in goals-against average (2.17) in 2006-07.

Originally a fourth-round selection (121st overall) of Detroit in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, MacIntyre has amassed a 94-55-6 record in 172 professional appearances in the NHL, AHL and ECHL since 2003-04.
