The expectation is that he and Kostenko will be dressed for the Royals game on Wednesday. MacIntyre is called up to Hershey since Sabourin is hurt. I found it interesting that the Bears took MacIntyre over the other two, since he is just on an ECHL contract and the other two are prospects. Obviously he is the more proven player, with Kostenko not looking too good so far and Anderson not having played for over a month. It probably helps the Royals salary cap situation, and it does prevent another AHL team from "stealing" MacIntyre away during the fluctuation that is going on with rosters right now. If the Bears hadn't called him up it is likely another AHL team would have grabbed him at least temporarily while the NHL is sorting out who is going to be where.
ManIntyre isn't an ECHL goalie. Hershey already had an AHL rookie in Grubauer (although hasnt played like it) and wasn't going to take the risk of having two young guys there and one sitting the bench. This allows Grubauer to have a backup and Kostenko and Anderson to be playing.
