Oilers call up LaBarbera with Bryzgalov injured
The Edmonton Oilers recalled goalie Jason LaBarbera from the Oklahoma City Barons of the American Hockey League to replace Ilya Bryzgalov.

The Edmonton Oilers recalled goalie Jason LaBarbera from the Oklahoma City Barons of the American Hockey League on Monday. To make room for LaBarbera, defenseman Corey Potter was assigned to the Oilers' farm club.

LaBarbera was summoned a day after goalie Ilya Bryzgalov left the game in Dallas with an upper-body injury caused by a collision with Dallas Stars center Ryan Garbutt.

Signed to a one-year contract by the Oilers Nov. 8 and called up Nov. 17 after a conditioning stint with Oklahoma City, Bryzgalov is 1-1-0 with a 2.11 goals-against average and .939 save percentage in four games (three starts).

"Bryzgalov took a hard hit [Sunday]," coach Dallas Eakins told the Oilers website after practice Monday. "He's being assessed as we speak to see where he's at. We'll know later in the day."

LaBarbera has a 1.93 goals-against average and a .953 save percentage in two games with the Barons.

Devan Dubnyk finished the 3-2 shootout win Sunday.

The Oilers play at home Tuesday against the Phoenix Coyotes, LaBarbera's former team.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
