Picard out for the season, Lee recalled

According to the Ottawa Sun, defenceman Alex Picard's knee injury is going to keep him out of the lineup for the rest of the season. He's been out for a few games already, but it seems the seriousness of the injury was just now found out and he'll be on the injured reserve for the rest of the season.

Also on the mend is Jason Smith, who injured his knee against Buffalo on Saturday. Haven't seen reports on the extent of Smith's injury, but Ottawa has recalled Brian Lee on an emergency basis, presumably because Smith's injury will keep him out of the lineup for a little while.
