Jake Chrisitansen is back up.

The club recalled Christiansen from Cleveland and assigned David Jiricek to the Monsters. 

Christiansen has posted four assists in 11 AHL games this season and has scored one goal in eight career NHL games, all in 2021-22. 

Jiricek was the No. 6 overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft and has played in two NHL games this season and posted five assists in six AHL games as well.

These moves come after the team announced that Zach Werenski is out for the season with a torn labrum and a separated shoulder, Nick Blankenberg is on IR with a fractured ankle and a high ankle sprain that they expect will sideline him for six-to-eight weeks, and Erik Gudbranson is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
