SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Sharks have placed forward Tommy Wingels and defenceman Justin Braun on injured reserve.
The team also called up defenceman Dylan DeMelo from Worcester of the AHL and loaned defenceman Mirco Mueller to Worcester on a conditioning assignment Tuesday.
Wingels and Braun both left Monday night's 5-2 loss to New Jersey with upper-body injuries. Braun got hurt blocking a shot in the second period and Wingels was hurt on a slash in the third. Coach Todd McLellan says both players will be out for "a while."
Wingels is tied for third on the team with 11 goals and also has 14 assists. Braun has one goal, 18 assists and a career-high 19 points this season.
DeMelo has three goals and 10 assists in 38 games with Worcester this season.
