Around the NHL: Isles call up Kearns; Kings place Zatkoff on waivers
The Los Angeles Kings have had some goalie problems this season. Star goaltender Jonathan Quick went down with an injury on opening night, and hasn't played since. G Peter Budaj has stepped in nicely, with a GAA of 2.12, a .917 SV% and 27 wins in 50 starts. His backup has changed throughout the season. Goalie Jeff Zatkoff was placed on waivers Wednesday. It's not official, but goalie Jack Campbell might be recalled from Ontario (AHL). Zatkoff, 29, has a SV% of .879, and a GAA of 2.94. Not exactly great numbers. We'll see if Campbell does get the call. Quick is expected to be back in March, so Campbell should get the call.
