|Assets:||Has a proven track record at the junior and minor-pro levels. Has sound fundamentals. Is capable of coming off the bench cold and doing a solid job.|
|Flaws:||Is still a little thin for his big frame, so he could stand to bulk up a bit in order to better his chances at backup duty. Doesn't stand out in any one area.|
|Career Potential:||Depth goaltender.|

Drew MacIntyre signs with the Hurricanes | 07/01/2014 6:20 PM
NewsDrew MacIntyre has agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the Carolina Hurricanes.
Chip Alexander on Twitter
ImpactMacIntyre had a 2.53 GAA and .917 save percentage in 48 AHL contests in 2013-14. The 31-year-old will start the season in the minors, but he's a legitimate option to be called up in the event of an injury.
Drew MacIntyre might be in line for NHL duty | 06/05/2014 3:30 PM
NewsDrew MacIntyre can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
ImpactIf he stays with the Leafs' organization and the team trades James Reimer then he could be an NHL backup next season. There's a chance that he may look for a more guaranteed job elsewhere. The 30-year-old journeyman has started just one NHL game in his career, but he's been excellent with the Marlies in the AHL for the past three seasons.
MacIntyre stays white hot in AHL playoffs | 05/24/2014 12:13 PM
NewsDrew MacIntrye continued his white hot play in the AHL playoffs stopping 49 of 50 shots in the Marlies' 5-1 win over the Texas Stars Friday night.
ImpactIt was the first game of the AHL's Western Conference finals and MacIntyre stood on his head to give the Marlies the victory and a 1-0 series lead over the regular season champions. Although he is hardly a prospect at the age of 30, MacIntyre could find himself in the NHL backing up Jonthan Bernier next season should the Maple Leafs trade James Reimer.
MacIntyre on AHL playoff role | 05/17/2014 11:14 AM
NewsDrew MacIntyre continued his stellar play in the AHL playoffs.
ImpactHe stopped all 30 shots in the Marlies 4-0 win over the Chicago Wolves Friday night leading the Maple Leafs' farm team to the AHL Western Conference Finals. If the Buds trade James Reimer this off-season, MacIntyre may find himself in Toronto in 2014-15.
Drew MacIntyre leads Marlies into Round 2 | 05/03/2014 7:38 AM
NewsDrew MacIntyre stopped all 29 shots to lead the Toronto Marlies to a 2-0 win over Milwaukee and sweep the best-of-five series.
ImpactMacIntyre gave up only four goals in the series and had a .955 save percentage as the 30-year-old led the Marlies into Round 2. MacIntyre could be the backup with the Maple Leafs next season as James Reimer could be moved out, but if Reimer remains, or if the Leafs decide on a more experienced NHL backup, then MacIntyre will likely return to the Marlies and provide a veteran presence in goal.
Drew MacIntyre loses first NHL start | 04/10/2014 11:59 PM
NewsMaking his first NHL start, Drew MacIntyre suffered a loss in a 4-2 defeat at the hands of the Panthers Thursday night.
ImpactThe 30-year-old rookie deserves congratulations for finally making an NHL start, but he has virtually no fantasy value. Look for James Reimer to make at least one more start from here on in.
Drew MacIntyre finally get his 1st NHL start | 04/10/2014 1:18 PM
NewsAs it was speculated earlier, Drew MacIntyre will get his first NHL start on Thursday against Florida.
ImpactThe 30-year-old netminder has appeared in five NHL games in relief and he's spent the vast majority of his professional career toiling in the minors.
Leafs may start Drew MacIntyre on Thursday | 04/10/2014 11:24 AM
NewsDrew MacIntyre could get his first NHL start Thursday.
ImpactThe Leafs have been eliminated from postseason play, so letting the journeyman goaltender have his moment in the sun would be a good gesture. "It doesn't matter when or where it is, you want to get that chance to start," said the 30-year-old netminder on Wednesday. "We will see. I hope it happens." James Reimer would also like to see MacIntyre get a chance to play.
Toronto will promote goalie Drew MacIntyre | 04/04/2014 12:31 PM
NewsThe Maple Leafs will call up Drew MacIntyre.
ImpactThat's no surprise, given that Jonathan Bernier won't return before the end of the regular season. MacIntyre has a 2.49 GAA and .918 save percentage in 48 AHL games.
Drew MacIntyre might start Wednesday | 03/19/2014 10:27 AM
NewsDrew MacIntyre may make his NHL debut on Wednesday night.
ImpactToronto coach Randy Carlyle didn't give a glowing assessment of James Reimer's performance in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Detroit. "I thought he was okay, you know," Carlyle said. "Just okay." MacIntyre is up with the Leafs because of Jonathan Bernier's groin injury and he's been excellent in the AHL this campaign.
Leafs recalled MacIntyre from Marlies | 03/15/2014 11:34 AM
NewsThe Maple Leafs have recalled Drew MacIntyre from the Marlies Saturday morning.
Jonas Siegel on Twitter
ImpactIt appears that Jonathan Bernier will not be able to dress for Sunday afternoon's matinee against the Capitals and MacIntyre is needed to back up James Reimer.
Leafs sign Drew MacIntyre to 2-way deal | 06/13/2013 5:04 PM
NewsDrew MacIntyre has inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
ImpactIn 21 games for the Toronto Marlies of the AHL this season, he posted a 13-5-3 record with a 1.83 goals-against average and a .931 save percentage. He will probably stay with the Marlies again next season.

NewsToronto Maple Leafs sign Drew MacIntyre to NHL contract.
Bob McKenzie on Twitter
ImpactMacIntyre has been playing with Leafs' AHL affiliate on a minor-league contract, which begs the question of whether MacIntyre is the third goalie Toronto has been looking to add. He'll have to clear waivers first, but the timing of this move is certainly curious to say the least.
