Edmonton Oilers forward Ty Rattie was placed on injured reserve Sunday, one day after the team announced he will miss a couple weeks with a muscle injury to his midsection.
Cooper Marody has been recalled from the AHL in a corresponding move.
Rattie left Thursday's game against the Boston Bruins and did not return. He then sat out Saturday's contest versus the Nashville Predators.
The 25-year-old winger had been gifted a glorious opportunity to play on Connor McDavid's line to start the season but was only able to muster two points in five appearances.
Rookie Kailer Yamamoto has played in Rattie's spot alongside McDavid and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins over the last game and a half.
Marody, a sixth-round pick by the Philadelphia Flyers in 2015, has been off to a hot start with the Bakersfield Condors, picking up six points through his first five games.
