Some notable injury listings to pass your way…

Edmonton Oilers

Placed defenseman Mark Fistric on injured reserve to clear a roster spot for newly acquired forward Mike Brown.

Fistric, 26, was obtained from Dallas in mid-January and has appeared in 13 games for the Oilers, recording 0G-2A-2PTS while averaging nearly 16 minutes a game.

He’s been out of the lineup since Feb. 28 with an elbow injury, and could be put on IR retroactively.

Columbus Blue Jackets

Placed defenseman John Moore on IR with a shoulder injury.

A former first-round pick (21st overall, 2009), Moore suffered the injury during the morning skate of Columbus’ game in Chicago on Mar. 1. He’s expected to be out two weeks and, as a result, the Jackets recalled Dalton Prout from AHL Springfield.

Moore has oG-1A-1PT in 13 games this season for Columbus, averaging 14:17 per contest.

San Jose Sharks

Placed forward Tommy Wingels on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury.

Wingels, 24, has appeared in 16 games for the Sharks this year, recording 1G-4A-5PTS while averaging 13:20 TOI.

In his place, San Jose has recalled Bracken Kearns from AHL Worcester — the same Bracken Kearns that made waves last season in Florida by making his NHL debut at age 30.
