ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak was placed on injured reserve with a right hand ailment.

Goalie Ben Bishop was recalled from Peoria of the AHL as insurance behind Halak's backup, Ty Conklin.

The 25-year-old Halak has played in 43 games with a 19-17-6 record, 2.63 goals-against average and four shutouts. He also missed the first game after the All-Star break with a shoulder injury.

St. Louis was 13th in the Western Conference with 59 points, nine points out of the final playoff spot, and have back-to-back games Friday at Buffalo and Saturday at home against Anaheim.

The 24-year-old Bishop, a St. Louis native, is 15-12-1 with a 2.52 goals-against average at Peoria.
