DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings today recalled defenseman Dan Renouf from the American Hockey League's Grand Rapids Griffins. Additionally, the Red Wings placed defenseman Troy Stecher on injured reserve retroactive to Nov. 4.

Renouf, 27, has skated in 11 games with the Griffins this season, notching two assists and 15 penalty minutes. Originally signed by Detroit as an undrafted free agent on March 10, 2016, he rejoined the organization this summer after spending a majority of the 2020-21 season with the Colorado Avalanche, earning his first NHL action since making his debut with the Red Wings during the 2016-17 campaign. In 18 games with the Avalanche, Renouf recorded three points (0-3-3), 16 penalty minutes, 20 hits and 12 shots on goal in 10:10 average time on ice. He also appeared in five games for the American Hockey League's Colorado Eagles, tallying three points (1-2-3) and four penalty minutes. Renouf previously played 146 games for the Grand Rapids Griffins between 2015-18, helping deliver the franchise's second Calder Cup championship in 2017.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound defenseman is a veteran of 290 AHL games between the Griffins, Charlotte Checkers and Eagles, totaling 74 points (10-64-74), a plus-47 rating and 405 penalty minutes. He's also added eight points (3-5-8), a plus-18 rating and 48 penalty minutes in 36 career AHL playoff games and became a two-time Calder Cup champion after helping Charlotte capture the title in 2018-19, where he teamed up with current Red Wings netminder Alex Nedeljkovic. A native of Pickering, Ontario, Renouf played three seasons at the University of Maine before turning pro at the end of the 2015-16 season, notching 38 points (10-28-38), a plus-14 rating and 72 penalty minutes from 2013-16. Renouf also logged two seasons in the United States Hockey League with the Youngstown Phantoms, registering 43 points (11-32-43), a plus-35 rating and 136 penalty minutes in 115 games from 2011-13.

Is Staal injured?  CapFriendly doesn’t indicate that he is, but it shows Vrana and Stephens on IR.

But they didn’t want to call up Witter even though they are playing the Blues which is a bigger physical team last time they played them.
