ATLANTA (AP) -Thrashers goaltender Kari Lehtonen was recalled Saturday from an AHL reconditioning assignment after missing 16 games with a groin injury.
The Thrashers sent goaltender Ondrej Pavelec back to the Chicago Wolves, their AHL affiliate.
Lehtonen, who opened the season as the starting goalie, was placed on injured reserve on Oct. 19. He was 0-4 in five games before the injury and was 2-0 with a 1.92 goals-against average with Chicago.
Lehtonen has a career record of 58-43-9 with seven shutouts for Atlanta, holding the franchise record in wins and shutouts.
