The SportsXchange

The New York Islanders placed goaltender Evgeni Nabokov on injured reserve on Monday with a lower-body injury.

Nabokov had to leave Saturday's game against Detroit because of the injury.

To replace Nabokov, the Isles called up 23-year-old Swedish goalie Anders Nilsson from AHL Bridgeport.

Nabokov, 38, began the season as the Islanders' No. 1 goalie, but Kevin Poulin was challenging him for that spot recently.

Nabokov has a 5-5-3 record with a 3.30 goals-against average this season.

---The Chicago Blackhawks announced that they agreed to terms with 2013 first-round draft choice Ryan Hartman on a three-year contract.

Hartman, a forward, was taken 30th overall.

---Los Angeles Kings goaltender Ben Scrivens, Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin and Minnesota Wild goaltender Josh Harding were named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week.
