Senators recall goalie Robin Lehner

The Ottawa Senators have recalled goaltender Robin Lehner from Binghamton of the American Hockey League.

Senators goalie Craig Anderson suffered an ankle injury in the third period of Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over the New York Rangers. Ben Bishop relieved and stopped six of seven attempts in the shootout to earn the victory. Anderson's injury isn't considered to be severe, and he's listed as day-to-day.

The 21-year-old Lehner has appeared in 13 NHL games for the Senators over the previous two seasons, posting a 4-6-0 record with a 2.81 goals-against average and .910 save percentage.

The Senators also assigned forward Stephane Da Costa to Binghamton. Da Costa had one goal and one assist in nine games for Ottawa this season.

Jets' Redmond recovering after surgery for skate cut

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Winnipeg Jets announced that Zach Redmond underwent surgery Thursday for approximately three hours to repair a laceration to his right femoral artery and vein.

Redmond left the ice by ambulance near the end of Thursday's morning skate after being cut on the back of the leg during a 1-on-1 drill.

"We were trying to get our extra players conditioned, and there was a 1-on-1 battle at the net where he tripped up and landed on his back," Jets coach Claude Noel said. "(Another) player happened to step on him and cut him just above the back of the knee."

The Jets later said in a statement that Redmond was resting comfortably in recovery and is expected to be out indefinitely.

Allen started four straight games for the Blues while Halak was on the shelf, winning the first three. In five total appearances this season, the 22-year-old Allen is 3-1-0 with a 2.62 goals-against average and .895 save percentage.

Hurricanes' Skinner day-to-day with concussion

Carolina Hurricanes forward Jeff Skinner has a concussion and is listed by the team as day-to-day.

Skinner, the team's second-leading scorer with seven goals and 14 points in 13 games, missed 16 games last season because of a concussion. He was injured last Thursday during Carolina's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, during which he took a couple of hard hits and went helmet-first into the boards on one of those hits.

Skinner said after the game he felt fine; he practiced Friday and took part in a fan event that night. But he was unable to practice Sunday and sat out Monday's game at the Montreal Canadiens. He has not practiced this week.

Skinner's 14 points trail only Eric Staal (17) on the Hurricanes. Skinner scored 31 goals in 2010-11 on the way to winning the Calder Trophy, then scored 20 last season despite the time missed.

He signed a six-year, $34 million contract extension with the Hurricanes in August.
