(TSX / STATS) -- The Arizona Coyotes placed Brendan Perlini on injured reserve and recalled fellow forward Emerson Etem from Tucson of the American Hockey League on Wednesday.
Perlini sustained an upper-body injury during the first period of Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights.
The 21-year-old had one assist in three games this season and scored 14 goals and set up seven others in 57 appearances during his rookie campaign in 2016-17.
Etem skated in three games with Anaheim last season and has recorded 22 goals, 24 assists and 30 penalty minutes in 173 career games with the Ducks, Vancouver Canucks and New York Rangers.
The 25-year-old, who was selected by Anaheim with the 29th overall pick of the 2010 draft, scored and set up a goal in one game with the Roadrunners this season.
