Biega was recalled from a conditioning assignment in the minors Monday, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.

Biega will be thrust into action with Alex Edler (finger) expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks. In his lone appearance this season, Biega saw 8:37 of ice time in which he logged just one blocked shot. During the 2015-16 campaign, the defenseman tallied seven helpers in 51 games, so fantasy owners should not expect much in terms of production.
