Jovanovski injured against Chicago

Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Ed Jovanovski was injured midway through the third period of the Coyotes' 3-1 victory versus the Chicago Blackhawks and did not return to the ice.

Jovanovski was pinned by a Blackhawks player against the right half-boards in the defensive zone when he sustained the injury. He immediately skated off the ice and received attention from Coyotes trainers in the dressing room.

Jovanovski's status is being evaluated but as of this writing is questionable for Saturday's road game against the Anaheim Ducks.

The Coyotes are already missing defensemen Zbynek Michalek and Kurt Sauer due to injury. Michalek is officially day-to-day, while Sauer is back skating after being injured in the season opener. Sami Lepisto has covered for Sauer, while defensive prospect David Schlemko, who earned an assist against Chicago, was called up from AHL San Antonio to replace Michalek.

UPDATE: The Coyotes have recalled Shaun Heshka from San Antonio today. No word if it is an emergency callup or longer-term.
