Columbus wasted little time getting a replacement goalie in for Sergei Bobrovsky.
On Wednesday morning, the club announced it had brought up Joonas Korpisalo from AHL Lake Erie on an emergency recall. Korpisalo, 21, is 5-4-2 with the Monsters this year, posting a 2.12 GAA and .928 save percentage.
The club didn’t have any update on Bobrovsky after he exited last night’s game against the Kings with an lower-body ailment.
Losing Bobrovsky for any length of time would be hugely damaging for Columbus.
He was terrific in November — posting a .940 save percentage over 11 games — and was even better to start December, posting a .958 save percentage (stopping 115 of 120 shots over a four-game span).
Prior to exiting Tuesday’s defeat to L.A., Bobrovsky had turned aside 33 of 34 shots faced.
