NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -The Tampa Bay Lightning recalled forward Karl Stewart from Norfolk of the AHL on Friday and had him in the lineup against the New Jersey Devils.
Stewart, who played 47 NHL games last season with Pittsburgh, Chicago and the Lightning, took the place of forward Andre Roy.
Roy was sent home earlier in the day after being benched by Tampa Bay coach John Tortorella during Thursday's loss at Philadelphia. Roy was knocked down by a punch in a second fight with the Flyers' Riley Cote and then made a throat-slashing motion toward the Philadelphia bench later in the game.
Tortorella got in Roy's face to try to settle him down on the bench and didn't play him after the second period. Last month, Roy was scratched for three straight games after a verbal confrontation on the bench with Tortorella.
Stewart has two goals and six points in 60 career NHL games.
