VANCOUVER, B.C. - The Vancouver Canucks sent Utica Comets goaltender Zane McIntyre to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for goaltender Louis Domingue ahead of the NHL trade deadline, Monday.
Following an injury to Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom, Vancouver has kept Domingue on their NHL roster to back-up Thatcher Demko for the time being.
This is Domingue's third organization since the beginning of the 2019-20 season. He originally started in the Tampa Bay Lightning organization with the Syracuse Crunch before being traded to the Devils.
For the Binghamton Devils in the AHL this season, Domingue is 4-2-1 with a 2.45 goals against average (GAA) and .912 save percentage (SV%) in seven games played.
He has also appeared in 16 games in the NHL for New Jersey this year where he is 3-8-2 with a 3.79 GAA and .882 SV%.
"Louis has experience in the league and he's played well," said Canucks General Manager Jim Benning. "We just felt like he is a player with experience that can come in and help support Thatcher [Demko] and he can play games for us and be competitive if we need him."
McIntyre appeared in 24 games for the Comets this season, where he was 11-10-2 with a 3.16 GAA and .894 SV%. He did not see any game action for the Canucks during his call-ups.
He has been assigned to Binghamton.
In a subsequent move, the Comets have recalled goalie Jake Kielly from the ECHL's Kalamazoo Wings to back-up Michael DiPietro.
Kielly has yet to make his AHL debut. In 24 games for Kalamazoo, Kiely is 7-11-4 with a 3.97 GAA and .887 SV%.
In another move today, the Canucks re-assigned forward Zack MacEwen to the Comets before immediately recalling him in a "paper transaction" at the deadline to make him eligible to return to Utica during the remainder of the regular season or through the Calder Cup Playoffs.
MacEwen has 11 points in 20 games for the Comets this season, while also notching three points in 12 games for the Canucks.
