The Winnipeg Jets officially announced that they placed their forward Patrik Laine on retro-active injured reserve ton Jan. 7 with a concussion.
They also announced in conjunction with their affiliate AHL team, the Manitoba Moose, that they have recalled defenceman Julian Melchiori. This move comes as defenceman Ben Chiarot was sidelined with illness yesterday and could miss tonight's game in Arizona.
Melchiori is a 6"4, 215 pounds defenceman who played 4 games in the NHL this season. He spent most of his time in the AHL where he scored 2 goals and added 4 helpers for 6 points in 32 games.
