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.
