GLENDALE, Ariz -- The Phoenix Coyotes placed centre Kyle Turris on injured reserve Tuesday because of an upper-body injury.

The move is retroactive to Friday, when Turris was hurt during Phoenix's shootout win over Edmonton, and he is listed as week-to-week.

Turris has four goals and two assists in 15 games this season.

Also on Tuesday, the Coyotes recalled 19-year-old defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson from their AHL club in San Antonio. Ekman-Larsson was the club's first-round draft pick (sixth overall) in 2009.
