Drew MacIntyre (born June 24, 1983) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender who is currently an unrestricted free agent that will attend the Washington Capitals training camp on a professional try-out contract.
MacIntyre played his entire junior hockey career in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) with the Sherbrooke Beavers. Playing four seasons with Sherbrooke, from 1999–2000 to 2002–03, he recorded seven shutouts in 188 regular season games.
Following his second QMJHL season, MacIntyre was chosen in round four of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft by the Detroit Red Wings, 121st overall. He turned pro in 2002–03 with the Toledo Storm of the ECHL. He remained within the Red Wings' organization for four seasons, including several American Hockey League (AHL) call-ups to the Grand Rapids Griffins.
In the 2006 off-season, MacIntyre signed with the Vancouver Canucks and subsequently spent the 2006–07 season with the team's AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose. MacIntyre set Moose regular-season franchise records with a 2.17 goals against average (surpassed by Cory Schneider in 2008–09) and a .922 save percentage (tied with Johan Hedberg, 1997–98), while posting a 24–12–2 record.
During the 2007–08 season, MacIntyre was called up by the Canucks on December 11, 2007, due to a minor injury to starting goaltender Roberto Luongo. Two days later, on December 13, MacIntyre made his NHL debut mid-way through the second period in relief of Canucks starter Curtis Sanford in a game against the San Jose Sharks. On January 29, 2008, MacIntyre made his second NHL appearance in relief of Sanford once more. He allowed one goal on 11 shots and picked up the loss in the Canucks' 4–3 defeat to the Stars. The two appearances marked his only NHL action during his tenure with the Canucks, recording a 2.95 GAA and .864 save percentage.
After being sent back to the Moose, MacIntyre became the ninth AHL goaltender to score a goal with an overtime game-winner. During a game against the Chicago Wolves on February 20, 2008, the Wolves had pulled their goaltender on a delayed penalty in overtime when an errant pass from Wolves forward Steve Martins travelled the length of the rink into the Wolves' net. MacIntyre, being the last Moose player to touch the puck on a save, was credited with the goal. On February 27, MacIntyre was named the AHL Player of the Week, having stopped 98 out of 101 shots over three road starts with a 0.98 GAA and his game-winner. MacIntyre completed his second season with the Moose with a 2.32 GAA, .921 save percentage and 25-18-2 record, while sharing starts with Canucks' first-rounder Cory Schneider.
Becoming an unrestricted free agent in the 2008 off-season, MacIntyre agreed to terms with the Nashville Predators on a one-year deal on July 1, 2008. He played the entire year for the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL, appearing in 55 games with an AHL career-high 34 wins.
On February 13, 2013, MacIntyre was signed to a professional tryout contract with the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League. On April 2, 2013, Drew MacIntyre signed an NHL contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs for the remainder of the 2012–13 season.
On June 13, 2013, the Maple Leafs re-signed MacIntyre to a one-year, two-way contract. In the back end of the 2013–14 season on April 10, 2014, MacInytre started his first NHL game against the Florida Panthers.
MacInytre continued his journeyman path in signing as a free agent to a one-year two way contract with the Carolina Hurricanes on July 1, 2014. In the 2014–15 season, he assumed the starting goaltender role with AHL affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers. In 51 games he collected 20 wins as the Checkers missed the post-season. On May 29, 2015, MacIntyre opted to remain within the Hurricanes organization, signing a one-year two-way contract extension.
In the following 2015–16 season, with the emergence of Hurricanes' goaltender prospects, MacIntyre was dealt at the trade deadline to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Dennis Robertson on February 29, 2016. MacIntyre was directly assigned to the AHL to help solidify the Rockford IceHogs. In December 2015, he represented Team Canada at the Spengler Cup and helped capture the title.
On April 27, 2016, MacIntyre opted to halt his North American career and put pen to paper to embark on a career abroad with a two-year deal with the Hamburg Freezers of the German top-flight Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL). However, shortly thereafter the Hamburg Freezers announced they had entered administration and ceased operations, returning MacIntyre to free agency. On September 7, 2016, having returned to North America, MacIntyre signed a professional try-out contract to attend the training camp of the Washington Capitals.
