The Arizona Coyotes announced on Saturday that the team recalled goalie Ivan Prosvetov from its AHL affiliate, Tucson Roadrunners.

In a corresponding move, the Coyotes also assigned goalie Josef Korenar to the Roadrunners.

Prosvetov was drafted by Arizona 114th overall in the 4th round of the 2018 NHL Draft.

The 23-year-old has played five for the Coyotes and gave up 17 goals on 126 shots for a .865 save percentage. He posted two losses and an overtime loss in three starts.

Korenar played in 12 NHL games and posted 26 goals allowed on 258 shots for a .899 save percentage.

Arizona’s No. 1 goalie, Karel Vejmelka, has seen an increased amount of action after the team traded goaltender Scott Wedgewood to the Dallas Stars in exchange for a conditional fourth-round draft pick.

He has allowed 131 goals on 1,366 shots against for a .904 save percentage and recorded 2,282 minutes on the ice this season.

The Coyotes travel to Chicago to take on the Blackhawks Sunday at 4 p.m. Catch all the action on ESPN 620 AM / 98.7 FM HD-2.
