The Thrashers brought up the Chicago Wolves starting goaltender Drew MacIntyre to fill in for Ondrej Pavelec for the time being. MacIntyre will more than likely accompany the Thrashers on their upcoming west coast road trip next week, seeing as how Pavelec has a concussion and the conclusion on the original cause of his passing out has not been reached.
Chris Mason will more than likely be starting every game until Pavelec returns to play. MacIntyre has not been given the chance to play much at the NHL level, but his AHL stats are solid. He has a 111-67-10 record in the AHL. Last season he finished with a 2.54 GAA and a .917 save percentage.
