Detroit -- The Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday recalled defenseman Doug Janik from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League.
Janik, 30, will be in the lineup Tuesdan nights when the Red Wings play host to the Colorado Avalanche.
Janik is in his second season with the Red Wings. He played in 13 games for Detroit last year, registering two assists, 18 PIM and a -3 rating. He has played in 174 career NHL games.
To clear a roster spot for Janik, the Red Wings placed veteran forward Kris Draper on Injured Reserve. Draper continues to nurse a groin injury suffered during training camp.
Uhm... why did they recall a defenseman?
They like to keep it 13-8-2 rather than 14-7-2 ?
And also is this long term injured reserve or just short term? must be the first one right to clear cap space?
