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.

Montreal Canadiens

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. 

Ottawa Senators

Defenceman Artem Zub will miss his second straight game with an upper-body injury. He left last Wednesday's contest against the Washington Capitals in the third period after taking a puck to the head on a shot from Alexander Ovechkin.

Pittsburgh Penguins

Goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic gets the start tonight against the Dallas Stars as the team looks to snap a two-game losing streak.

Nedeljkovic, 27, has appeared in one game for the Penguins this season, a 5-2 victory over the Calgary Flames where he made 34 saves. 

He split last season between the Detroit Red Wings and their AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins. In 15 games with Detroit, he was 5-7-2 with a .895 save percentage and 3.53 goals-against average.  

Detroit Red Wings

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.
