Thrashers place goalie Dunham on IR

ATLANTA -- Mike Dunham was placed on injured reserve Tuesday
after hurting his groin in yet another injury to an Atlanta
Thrashers goaltender.

The injury happened Saturday at Carolina, although it is not
related to an earlier groin injury that sidelined him. Dunham has
gone 4-3-1 with one shutout and a 2.10 goal-against average in
eight games.

The team recalled goaltender Michael Garnett from Chicago of the
AHL.

The Thrashers' starting goaltender is Adam Berkhoel. Goalie
Steve Shields is on the active roster but is recovering from a knee
injury. Projected starter Kari Lehtonen has been out since injuring
his groin in the opener and is not expected back this month.

Atlanta plays host to the New York Islanders on Wednesday night.
