Coyotes recall rookie goalie Climie from minors wire reports

NEW YORK -- The Phoenix Coyotes recalled rookie goalie Matt Climie on Friday from their AHL affiliate in San Antonio.

The 27-year-old Climie is 13-5-2 for the Rampage this season with a 2.45 goals-against average. He was signed by the Coyotes as a free agent in July.

Phoenix had to start backup goalie Jason LaBarbera in Thursday night's 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Rangers after Ilya Bryzgalov was sidelined by the flu.

With no time to call up another goaltender from the minors, the Coyotes signed 26-year-old Tom Fenton to a one-day amateur contract Thursday, but he did not play against the Rangers.
