WINNIPEG - The Canadiens announced on Friday end of day that they had called up goalie Charlie Lindgren from the AHL's Laval Rocket.
The 23-year-old goaltender was recalled as a preventative measure after the team announced that Carey Price had sustained a minor lower-body injury. Al Montoya will get the start in nets for the Habs on Saturday against the Jets.
In nine games in the AHL so far this season, Lindgren has posted a 3-3-2 record, with a 3.53 goals-against average and .885 save percentage. He has also registered one shutout.
