Phoenix Coyotes recall defenceman Ryan Lannon @NHLdotcom

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Phoenix Coyotes recalled defenceman Ryan Lannon under emergency conditions from their AHL affiliate in San Antonio on Thursday.

Lannon, 25, was called up as a precaution after veteran defenceman Derek Morris injured a hand in Wednesday night's 4-1 loss at Chicago.

Morris said "the ref stepped on my finger by accident and cut it pretty good" while he was lying on the ice during a scuffle with Adam Burish of the Blackhawks in the first period.

Morris has not missed a game because of injury since the 2005-06 season.

Lannon appeared in both of San Antonio's games this season and played in three pre-season games for the Coyotes but has yet to play in an NHL regular-season game.

Lannon, who played at Harvard, had three goals and 10 assists in 75 games last season for Pittsburgh's AHL affiliate in Wilkes-Barre Scranton.
