Nelson was recalled Monday from AHL Rochester.

It's the third call-up of the season for Nelson, who has been held without a point in his nine appearances with the parent club. He'll give the team some additional depth on the blue line and could be included in the lineup Monday against the Red Wings with four of the team's other defensemen (Justin Falk, Cody Franson, Dmitry Kulikov and Taylor Fedun) all looking unlikely to play.
