Thrashers Recall Arturs Kulda From AHL; Activate Chris Mason From IR

According to Chris Vivlamore of the AJC, Arturs Kulda is the Wolves defenseman recalled after Freddy Meyer's scary collapse at center ice last night. In case you missed the game:

 

 

He appears to be ok as of now, but as a precaution is being sat out of the Thrashers' next game or two. Kulda was Zach Bogosian's old pairing partner from the Peterborough Petes, and so far this season with the Wolves has two goals and seven assists. Last season he was a +47 for the AHL affiliate Wolves.

The Thrashers also activated Chris Mason. Mason sprained his right knee in the first period of the Thrashers' 6-1 loss to the Dallas Stars on January after being hit by a sliding Chris Thorburn, who was still down after blocking a shot. Mason's return gives the Thrashers a chance to sit Pavelec when needed for rest - he has started all seven games since Mason was injured. Presumably, though, Mason won't get a chance to play until Monday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Putting in a cold goalie against a team that the Thrashers need points so badly against is not a swell idea, especially a goalie who hasn't gotten his stats under control all season. Mason is currently sporting a not-so-pleasant 3.78 GAA and a .892 save percentage. Still, it is nice to have two NHL goaltenders when the need arises.
