Wings recall Callahan just in case someone can’t go Tuesday in Columbus

DETROIT >> The team recalled Mitch Callahan, 22, from Grand Rapids and sent Landon Ferraro back to Grand Rapids. Callahan is third on the Griffins with 40 points (25 goals, 15 assists) in 66 games.

“We felt we should have an extra body just in case,” Wings general manager Ken Holland said. “These games are so big, we don’t want to wake up after the skate and find out we’re having to rush to get someone to Columbus from Grand Rapids.”

If he makes his NHL debut Tuesday in Columbus he will be the eighth player to do so this season.

“He’s having a real good year,” Holland said. “He’s gritty. He’s been very, very good down at that level for the last little while.”
