Joey MacDonald Comfortable In Grand Rapids

from Lindsay Kramer at NHL.com,

Joey MacDonald knows exactly where the goaltending standards are set in his return to the net in Grand Rapids.

He’s the one who put most of them there in the first place.

MacDonald, 30, signed with the Detroit organization last week after three seasons away from his comfort zone with the Griffins. From 2002 to 2007 he set numerous franchise marks, including career shutouts (16), games played by a goaltender in a season (66 in 2004-05), wins in a season (tied, 34 in 2004-05), shutouts in a season (tied, 6 in 2003-04), and single-season save percentage (.936 in 2003-04). He is second in career wins (88) and saves (4,251).

“I’m setting the bar pretty high for myself. I have great expectations,” MacDonald said. “I’m going to go in there and keep fighting. It doesn’t matter how old you are. It may work out, it may not. But going in, I love to be there. I’m excited to be going back, and that’s a great start for me.”
