Joey Mac has to stay on the active roster 30 days as he was claimed so you can't send him down.

If Irving continues his awesome play and he beats out Joey Mac for the backup when Kipper comes back - you probably don't want to send him down especially with the fear he might get picked up on waivers.

So I guess the Flames would have to carry 3 goalies for a couple of weeks in this situation? I guess it wouldn't be the end of the world. Although whoever gets sent down is probably not going to be happy as there isn't a lot of room in Abbsortford either.

Should be some competition I guess over the next couple of weeks who is the teams #2 goalie
Just a thought, we do have a compliance buyout so if MacDonald is the odd man out we can just buy him out. Given that we have two and theres not really anyone I can see us buying out, this would be a good idea
