So everyone was probably at least a little surprised when they had heard that the Leafs had signed Joey Mac after landing the monster. Toskala was slated to be the number one so why would we get another goalie? Well Joey Mac has benefited us so much already, even though his record is 0-3 he had stepped up big time for the Marlies and has been recalled to Toronto a few times already due to some injury problems with Vesa Toskala. MacDonald a native of Pictou Nova Scotia, has played for a few teams in the league already. They include the Detroit Red Wings, Boston Bruins, New York Islanders and of course our Toronto Maple Leafs. He had a career high in wins and games played last year for the last placed Islanders. In the off-season he signed a 1 year deal worth $650,000. This has been an under rated signing by GM Brian Burke due to the games MacDonald has either played in or backed up Jonas Gustavsson. MacDonald is not a big name in the NHL and has flown under the radar thus far in his career, but playing in Toronto can allow him to get his name out there and if he plays okay on a bad Toronto team, one team in the league may be willing to sign MacDonald to a multi-year deal. It may only be as a back up, but at least he can try and earn a spot as a number 1.
That is all for my blogs thanks for reading,
