ATLANTA (AP) -With Marian Hossa sidelined by a groin injury, the Atlanta Thrashers called up right wing Darren Haydar on Thursday from Chicago of the American Hockey League.
Haydar appeared in three preseason games for the Thrashers, scoring one goal. Last season, he led the AHL with 122 points (41 goals, 81 assists).
Hossa was injured in practice Monday. He missed a 3-1 loss to Ottawa, the Thrashers' third setback in three games to start the season, and wasn't able to play at Buffalo on Thursday night.
