Rupp, 31, has one goal and 14 penalty minutes in seven games this season.  He has missed the last six games due to the injury. The nine-year NHL veteran skated in his 500th career NHL contest on Oct. 15.

Flames recall Brodie -- The Calgary Flames recalled defenseman T.J. Brodie from their AHL affiliate, the Abbotsford Heat after placing defenseman Anton Babchuk on Injured Reserve due to a hand injury.

Brodie, a native of Chatham, Ont., played three games in the NHL last season with the Flames. He has a goal and three assists along with 10 penalty minutes in 12 games with the Heat this season.

Kings place Parse on IR -- The Los Angeles Kings placed forward Scott Parse on the injured reserve list due to a lower-body injury sustained early in Tuesday's 4-3 win against Nashville. He played only three shifts before leaving.

Jackets send Dekanich, Atkinson to AHL -- The Columbus Blue Jackets activated goaltender Mark Dekanich off injured reserve and assigned him to their AHL farm team, the Springfield Falcons. The club also assigned rookie right wing Cam Atkinson to Springfield.

Dekanich was injured during a preseason game against Winnipeg on Sept. 20 and has missed the season’s first 14 games. He was one of the top goaltenders in the AHL last season, going 23-12-2 with a 2.02 goals-against average, .931 save percentage and four shutouts in 43 games with the Milwaukee Admirals, the Nashville Predators’ top affiliate. He led the AHL in save percentage, ranked third in goals-against average and was selected to play in the 2011 AHL All-Star Classic. He signed with Columbus as a free agent on July 1.

Atkinson, 22, has one goal in five games with the Blue Jackets this season.  He made his NHL debut against Nashville on Oct. 7 and scored his first NHL goal against Vancouver three days later. He also has four goals, six points and four penalty minutes in 10 games with Springfield.

averaging 5:47 of ice time per game. The native of Livonia, Mich., was acquired from the St. Louis Blues in return for Matt D’Agostini on March 3, 2010.
