Drew MacIntyre has been rewarded for his workmanlike effort last season.
MacIntyre, who set an AHL Charlotte franchise record for minutes played in 2014-15, has signed a one-year, two-way extension with the Hurricanes for $600,000, the club announced on Friday.
The deal will pay the 31-year-old MacIntyre $250,000 at the AHL level.
A well-traveled journeyman that’s played professionally in Toledo, Grand Rapids, Manitoba, Vancouver, Milwaukee, Chicago, Hamilton, Rochester, Buffalo, Prague, Reading and Toronto, MacIntyre has six career NHL appearances on his resume and dressed for one game as the ‘Canes backup last year, but failed to see any ice time.
Based on the current state of the Canes’ goaltending depth chart, MacIntyre is expected to spend the majority of next year back in Charlotte. Anton Khudobin and Cam Ward are both locked in to Carolina for the foreseeable future.
