With the lower body to Sergei Bobrovsky still in limbo until further medical tests today, the Jackets are covering their bases by adding goalie Mike McKenna on emergency recall. They sent Michael Chaput back to Springfield to make room:
McKenna, 30, has appeared in 17 career NHL games with Tampa Bay and New Jersey, amassing a record of 4-9-1 to go along with a 3.49 goals-against-average and .887 save-percentage. This season, he is 6-2-0 with a 1.45 GAA, .943 SV% and two shutouts in eight games with Springfield and was named the CCM/AHL Goaltender of the Month for November (4-1-0, 1.16 GAA, .950 SV%, 2 SO).
If Bobrovsky is out for an extended period of time, look for McKenna to get a spot-start here and there, as the Jackets have a stretch of five games in eight days coming up beginning December 9.
