DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Red Wings have recalled defensemen Xavier Ouellet from Grand Rapids of the AHL.
The team announced the move Saturday. The 22-year-old Ouellet has appeared in 38 games for the Griffins this season, scoring three goals with 14 assists. He has been named to the AHL All-Star Game in each of the past two seasons.
Drafted by the Red Wings in the second round in 2011, Ouellet has played 25 career NHL games. He's scored two goals with one assist for the Red Wings - all of those points came last season.
Detroit hosts the Boston Bruins on Sunday.
