Detroit Reassigns Machovsky To Walleye

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Detroit Red Wings have reassigned goaltender Matej Machovsky (ma-TAY meh-HAWZ-kee) from the Grand Rapids Griffins to the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye.

In his first professional season in North America, Machovsky, 24, has yet to make his Griffins debut. He has appeared in two games with the Walleye this season and shows a 1-1-0 record, a 2.88 goals against average and a 0.909 save percentage. 

A native of Opava, Czech Republic, Machovsky played the last four seasons with Plzen HC of the Czech Extraliga. Skating in 178 games from 2013-17, the 6-foot-2, 200-pound netminder amassed a 94-84-0 record and a 2.23 GAA, including a 21-25-0 mark and a 2.25 GAA in last year’s campaign.

Prior to turning pro, Machovsky played three seasons in the Ontario Hockey League with Guelph (2010-11) and Brampton (2010-13). He posted a 56-45-13 record and a 2.54 GAA in juniors and was named to the 2011 OHL Second All-Rookie Team after claiming the best goals against average (2.90) by a first-year goaltender. 

The Griffins return to Van Andel Arena on Friday and will host their 18th annual teddy bear toss when they play the Manitoba Moose at 7 p.m. 

Single-game tickets are currently on sale. Fans can secure their full-seasonselect-season or groupticket packages by calling (616) 774-4585 ext. 2 or visit for more information.
