TAMPA, Fla. - The Tampa Bay Lightning have recalled defenceman Evan Oberg and left winger Mike Angelidis from Norfolk of the AHL.

The moves were announced before Tuesday night's game against Columbus.

Oberg, who has been called up from the minors seven times since Tampa Bay acquired him from Florida on Dec. 2, was in the Lightning's lineup for the first time this season Tuesday. It was his fifth career NHL game.

Angelidis made his NHL debut in the game against the Blue Jackets.

The Lightning are playing without several key injured players, including defencemen Victor Hedman (concussion), Mattias Ohlund (left and right knees) and Marc-Andre Bergeron (back); and left winger Ryan Malone (upper-body injury).
