Nabokov injured, Sharks recall Schaefer

Kazakh goalie Evgeni Nabokov of the San Jose Sharks is expected to be out until next weekend because of an undisclosed upper body injury.

Nabokov was injured Friday in a collision with San Jose defenseman Christian Ehrhoff during the Sharks' 4-1 loss at Columbus. He sat out Saturday for the first time this season as the Sharks lost 2-1 at Nashville with Vesa Toskala in goal.

San Jose recalled Nolan Schaefer from their minor-league affiliate in Cleveland to serve as Toskala's backup.

Schaefer was 1-2 with a 3.01 goals-against average for Cleveland this season, AP reports.
