ATLANTA - The Atlanta Thrashers recalled centre Jason Krog from the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League on Tuesday.

The team is looking to add depth after announcing Monday that captain Ilya Kovalchuk would be sidelined for about a month with a broken bone in his right foot.

The 34-year-old Krog had four points in 14 games with the Thrashers in the 2006-07 season and has played with four other NHL teams.

Krog had one goal and six assists in eight games with the Wolves.

Quote of the Day

You've got to focus on playing good hockey. When we do that we give ourselves a chance to win games. Win games and then maybe we''ll have a chance at the end. You can't worry about something like (the division title) when we're not playing our best hockey down the stretch. We'll figure things out together the way we always do and get back on the right page.
