Petteri Lindbohm has been called up by the St. Louis Blues.
Lindbohm was sent down on Dec. 19, so a good chunk of his time in the minors corresponded with the Blues' holiday break. He has an assist in eight games with St. Louis in 2014-15.
The New York Islanders returned Kevin Poulin to the AHL Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
Poulin was called up on Tuesday because Jaroslav Halak was dealing with an undisclosed injury. Halak is presumably okay for Saturday's game, but if that proves to not be the case than Poulin will be brought back up.
The New Jersey Devils have placed Patrik Elias (mumps) on the injured reserve list.
This is just an FYI as the move is presumably retroactive Dec. 20 and Elias wasn't expected to play on Saturday anyways. In other words, the fact that Elias is on the injured reserve list doesn't mean that he is guarantee to miss more time than previously anticipated.
Martin Havlat (illness) is on the injured reserve list.
Havlat was suspected of having the mumps, but his test results came back negative. He won't be in the Devils' lineup on Saturday.
Alex Tuch scored a goal in the United States' 2-1 shootout victory over Finland in the 2015 World Juniors.
Tuch has five goals and 12 points in 17 games with Boston College this season. He was taken with the 18th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft by the Minnesota Wild. He's got the potential to develop into a top-six power forward.
The Carolina Hurricanes have called up Brendan Woods.
Woods was just sent to the minors for the duration of the holiday break. He made his NHL debut on Tuesday and logged 6:10 minutes in that contest.
The Columbus Blue Jackets have called up Sean Collins on an emergency basis.
Columbus sent Collins to the minors on Dec. 22, so by recalling him now he hasn't missed a single game in the Blue Jackets schedule. He will serve as the backup plan in case Scott Hartnell (hand) isn't able to play on Saturday as anticipated. If Hartnell isn't available then Collins will dress.
Corey Potter has been called up by the Calgary Flames.
Potter was called up earlier in December, but he didn't end up playing in a game with Calgary during that stint. He has five assists and 10 penalty minutes in 19 contests in 2014-15.
