The St. Pete Times  is reporting that Lightning GM Brian Lawton has indicated that Bolt goaltending prospect Karri Ramo  will be recalled prior to Sunday afternoon's game against the New Jersey Devils. Ramo will backup starter Olaf Kolzig  while netminder Mike Smith  nurses a lower body injury that has been nagging him for a few games.
Along with Ramo, Lawton indicated that either Jamie Heward  or Andrew Hutchinson  would be recalled to fill in for blueliner Lukas Krajicek , who suffered a lower body injury during the Lightning's 4-1 victory over Nashville Friday night. Both Heward and Hutchinson are right-handed defenseman, and Lawton indicated that was the main reason for the recall of one of these two players. Heward was scratched in today's afternoon Admirals game against Lowell, possibly tipping the hat as to who would be recalled.
In order to make room for Ramo and Heward/Hutchinson, both Gary Roberts  and Chris Gratton  will be placed on the Injured Reserve list. Roberts is suffering from an upper body injury, while Gratton is out with a minor knee tweak. This move may cue a recall of goaltender Riku Helenius  from the Augusta Lynx to back up Norfolk's Mike McKenna .
