The Edmonton Oilers have placed goalie Mike Smith on injured reserve with a lower-body injury.
The team has also recalled netminder Stuart Skinner from the Bakersfield Condors in the American Hockey League.
Head coach Dave Tippett said after the game that Smith “tweaked something” and would see a doctor on Wednesday morning.
Smith, 39, has made three appearances for the Oilers (3-0-0) this season, posting a .920 save percentage and a 3.08 goals-against average.
The native of Kingston, Ont., signed a two-year, US$4.4-million extension with Edmonton in July after tallying a 21-6-2 regular-season record last year with a .923 save percentage and a 2.31 goals-against average.
