Vaakanainen was recalled from AHL Providence to the taxi squad Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

Matt Grzelcyk (upper body) and Jakub Zboril (upper body) will both miss Thursday's game against the Devils. Vaakanainen adds depth among left-shooting defensemen. The 2017 first-round pick (18th overall) has gone pointless through three AHL games this season.
