Canucks recall Biega from Utica


Recommended Posts

Its because Sbisa is on injured reserve.  Biega was originally recalled because Hamhuis tweaked something but wasn't injured bad enough to be placed on IR.  Sbisa was hurt and placed on IR while Biega was in Vancouver so they sent him down to the Comets for a game then recalled him again but this time as an emergency recall because Sbisa is on IR.

  1. Who is injured as Biega got recalled under emergency conditions - means that they are 1D short.

  2. From the CBA:

  3. Emergency conditions shall be established when the playing strength of the Loaning Club, by reason of incapacitating injury or illness or by League suspension to its Players is reduced below the level of two (2) goalkeepers, six (6) defensemen and twelve (12) forwards.

Did we not go into our last game with just 6 D, no reserve with Sbisa on the IR?

Emergency status may just have to do with cap...


edit: oh Tanev... :blush:

Don't think it has to do with the cap.  Avoids waivers when the recalled player gets sent back down.  Also it looks like an injured player doesn't need to be placed on IR (which is at least 7 days) when emergency conditions are invoked.
