DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings have recalled defenceman Xavier Ouellet from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL and put forward Justin Abdelkader on the injured list.

Abdelkader's move on Thursday is retroactive to Nov. 30, when he left a game against Vancouver with a shoulder injury.

The 21-year-old Ouellet has played five games with the Red Wings this season. He earned his first NHL point with an assist on Nov. 22 at Toronto, and scored his first goal Nov. 28 at New Jersey.

Abdelkader has seven goals and eight assists in 24 games this season.
