TAMPA - The Lightning's injury list got longer with the announcement that right wing Michel Ouellet will be out four to six weeks with a separated left shoulder.
Ouellet was hurt Thursday when checked by Calgary's Robyn Regher.
"Our depth is definitely being tested," general manager Jay Feaster said.
Center Blair Jones was called up from AHL Norfolk, where he was third on the team with 19 points on six goals and 13 assists in 26 games.
Ouellet, acquired last summer as a free agent, had six goals and 18 points in 32 games but was averaging just 13:03 of ice time and was demoted to the fourth line.
He joins defenseman Dan Boyle and forwards Ryan Craig and Tim Taylor on the injured list.
SMALL CONSOLATION: The team said an official scorer's change to Thursday's sheet reduced defensemen Paul Ranger and Filip Kuba to minus-5 from minus-6.
