DETROIT >> The Detroit Red Wings will recall defenseman Xavier Ouellet from Grand Rapids after placing Jakub Kindl on short-term injured reserve.
Kindl suffered an elbow sprained elbow in practice Sunday. He skated on his own before practice testing it out and looked as if he was having difficulty shooting the puck.
Wings coach Mike Babcock said Ouellet will be in the lineup Wednesday against New Jersey.
Kindl didn’t play Monday in Boston.
That means Brian Lashoff will be a healthy scratch.
