Winnipeg, MB (Sports Network) -- The Philadelphia Flyers placed forward Jody Shelley on injured reserve prior to Tuesday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Shelley, which has only suited up in one game this season, was sidelined by a hip injury.

The 37-year-old Manitoba native has been used sparingly since arriving in Philadelphia in 2010, accumulating two goals and five points in 89 games over two-plus seasons.

Philly also recalled forward Harry Zolnierczyk from Adirondack of the American Hockey League to compensate for the absences of Shelley and forward Sean Couturier, who was a late scratch for Monday's loss in Toronto with the flu and was sent home to recover.

Zolnierczyk has spent the entire 2012-13 season with the Phantoms, where he has posted nine goals and 17 points in 46 games. He appeared in 37 games for the Flyers a year ago, recording three goals and three assists.
