Ice Chips: Canadiens recall D Lindstrom from AHL on emergency basis
Keep updated on all the injury news and roster updates from around the NHL with daily Ice Chips.
The Canadiens have recalled defenceman Gustav Lindstrom on an emergency basis from the AHL's Laval Rocket.
Lindstrom was recalled with the team announcing that defenceman David Savard will be out indefinitely with an upper-body injury.
Lindstrom has zero points in four appearances with Laval this season.
The Ostervala, Sweden native was a second-round pick (38th overall) by the Detroit Red Wings at the 2017 NHL Draft. He is on a one-year, $950,000 contract.
The 25-year-old was acquired by the Canadiens along with a 2025 conditional fourth-round pick in the trade that sent Jeff Petry to Detroit.

Per head coach Derek Lalonde, defenceman Jeff Petry did not skate this morning and is considered day-to-day.
Petry, 35, has appeared in four games for the Red Wings this season, recording two assists. He was previously a healthy scratch against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Oct. 16 and did not play in Sunday's game against Calgary.
He was acquired in the off-season from the Montreal Canadiens on Aug. 15 in exchange for defenceman Gustav Lindstrom and a conditional 2025 fourth-round pick. Petry was originally traded to Montreal nine days earlier in the three-team blockbuster trade that sent Erik Karlsson to the Pittsburgh Penguins from the San Jose Sharks.
The Ann Arbor, Mich. native is in the third season of a four-year, $25 million contract.
