Popovic called up, Exelby on IR

Press release:

Thrashers Recall Defenseman Mark Popovic from Chicago (AHL);
Garnet Exelby Placed on Injured Reserve

The Atlanta Thrashers have recalled defenseman Mark Popovic from the

according to Executive Vice President and General Manager Don Waddell.
The Thrashers roster now stands at 23, including 13 forwards, eight
defensemen and two goaltenders (see attached roster).

Popovic, 24, has earned four points (two goals, two assists) and 12

I would imagine Hartley will keep the top 4 intact, and give them even more minutes than normal. Hnidy will probably be a mainstay on that third pairing, being a fairly grounded veteran and all. From there I'd guess Coburn and Popovic will both get their shot until McCarthy comes back?

Pairing either one of the kids with Hnidy could be a better match than Exelby & Hnidy are. I doubt any of them will get much icetime though..

When's McCarthy due back?

So both Popovic & Coburn are coming up?

EDIT: I think Coburn was already called up after S-mac injured his shoulder. Should be interesting tomorrow.
