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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
