ST. LOUIS – Blues goaltender Brian Elliott sustained a lower-body injury in the second period Tuesday against the Ottawa Senators.
He left the game and did not return.
General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Wednesday the club has recalled goaltender Jordan Binnington from the American Hockey League's Chicago Wolves under emergency conditions.
Binnington, 21, has made nine appearances for the Wolves this season, posting a 6-2-1 record, while his 1.89 goals against average ranks third and his .925 save percentage is 12th in the AHL overall.
Binnington was originally drafted by the Blues in the third round (88th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
