Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - The Detroit Red Wings have recalled defenseman Doug Janik from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League, and placed forward Kris Draper on injured reserve to open a roster spot.

Draper has not played this season, as he continues to deal with a groin injury suffered in training camp.

Janik, 30, played in 13 games for Detroit last season, posting two assists and 18 penalty minutes. The team said he will be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Colorado.
