The Red Wings won't play again until Saturday, and the Grand Rapids Griffins open a set of 3 games in 3 nights by hosting the Charlotte Checkers on Friday, so Xavier Ouellet's driving back up I-96 today:
RED WINGS SEND OUELLET TO GRIFFINS
… Defenseman has Played One Game with Detroit, Five with Grand Rapids as First-Year Pro …
DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today assigned defenseman Xavier Ouellet to the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins.
Ouellet, 20, made his NHL debut with Detroit on Monday, recording one shot, one hit and 17:15 of ice time in a 1-0 shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks on Monday. A first-year pro from Bayonne, France, Ouellet has also suited up in five games for the Griffins, registering two assists and a plus-one rating. Last season, he skated in 50 games with the QMJHL’s Blainville-Boisbriand Armada, recording 41 points and earning a spot on the QMJHL First All-Star Team for the second straight year. He finished his major junior career with 160 points (41-119-160) in 223 games from 2009-13 with Blainville-Boisbriand and the Montreal Juniors.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
