Goaltender Brian Eklund has been recalled by the Lightning from Springfield of the AHL. The move was apparently prompted by Sean Burke straining his groin muscle in today's morning skate.
The Springfield Falcons have reassigned 2003 2nd round pick Mike Egener to Johnstown of the ECHL and recalled Jay Rosehill. The move comes in the same week that Adam Henrich saw a similar stint in Johnstown as a consequence of ineffective play.
Fran Sypek reports that defenseman Brad Bombardir is scheduled to undergo knee surgery which may put his season in jeopardy. The news comes as the Falcons find themselves in the midst of a brief tailspin that has seen them give up 15 goals in their last two contests.
After a red hot start Linkopings has hit a rough patch in late October. Today the team dropped a decision in which goaltender Fredrik Norrena stopped just 14 of 18 shots faced. Norrena was pulled with about two and a half minutes to go as Linkopings surrendered an empty net goal.
