The Pittsburgh Penguins have placed Evgeni Malkin on injured reserve due to his lower-body injury.
Malkin missed this weekend's All-Star activities as a result of the injury.
As a result, the Penguins called up four players from their AHL affiliate on Monday.
Pittsburgh is 26-12-8 this season and in second place in the Metropolitan Division with 60 points.
