The New York Islanders placed forward Jordan Eberle on injured reserve with an upper body injury and recalled forward Michael Dal Colle from Bridgeport of the American Hockey League (AHL).
Eberle’s move is retroactive to last Sunday. He has seven goals and 10 assists in 35 games this season, but missed the Islanders’ 6-3 victory over Ottawa on Friday night due to stiffness.
Eberle, 28, is in his second season with New York after spending his first seven NHL seasons with Edmonton. He scored 25 goals and had 34 assists last season.
Dal Colle was the Islanders’ first-round pick out of Yale in the 2014 NHL Draft. He has yet to score in six career NHL games, and this is his third stint with the Islanders this season.
Dal Colle has 12 goals and 16 assists in 28 games with the Sound Tigers this season.
