WINNIPEG – The Winnipeg Jets announced Saturday the team has recalled forward Quinton Howden from their AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose.
The move comes as forward Mathieu Perreault was placed on injured reserve.
Perreault has not played since going down with an upper-body injury on November 3. The move to put Perreault on injured reserve is retroactive to November 4.
Howden signed with the Jets on July 1, after he was selected by the Florida Panthers in the first round of the 2010 NHL draft.
He has nine points in 11 games with Manitoba this season and leads the Moose with seven goals.
The Jets return home Sunday to play the Los Angeles Kings, after dropping a 3-2 overtime final to the Avalanche in Colorado on Friday.
