Grand Rapids Griffins goaltender Tom McCollum spoke with WZZM 13 regarding his status as the Griffins’ starter after Jared Coreau was recalled to Detroit:
With Coreau recalled, the Griffins on Tuesday brought up Matej Machovsky from ECHL’s Toledo Walleye for Wednesday’s home game against Chicago.
Veteran Tom McCollum, who has started 19 games (3.15 GAA, .900 save pct.), will return to No. 1 for the Griffins.
The 24-year-old Machovsky, 24, in his first professional season in North America, leads the ECHL in GAA with a 2.02 mark while also placing third with a 0.928 save percentage. He has an 11-9-1 record with two shutouts in 21 games with the Walleye and has won four of his last six outings.
