Goaltender Curtis McElhinney was placed on injured reserve Sunday by the Columbus Blue Jackets, who recalled goaltender Anton Forsberg from Springfield of the American Hockey League on an emergency basis, the team announced.

McElhinney suffered an upper-body injury in his first start of the season Saturday against the Ottawa Senators. He is expected to miss at least a week.

Forsberg, a sixth-round pick (No. 188) in the 2011 NHL Draft, is 1-2-0 with a 2.36 goals-against average and .921 save percentage in three games with Springfield this season. He is 4-2-0 with a 1.69 GAA and .940 save percentage in seven career AHL games since making his North American professional debut with the Falcons late in the 2013-14 season.
