Red Wings recall Smith; Bertuzzi on IR
DETROIT –  The Detroit Red Wings today announced that defenseman Brendan Smith has been recalled from the Grand Rapids Griffins (AHL) and forward Todd Bertuzzi has been placed on seven-day injured reserve.

Smith is required to sit out one more NHL game as part of his five-game suspension handed down during the preseason.  Bertuzzi has missed the last four Red Wings contests due to a sinus infection and swelling in his ear.

at St. Louis (11/15, 8:00 p.m.), San Jose (11/17, 10:30 p.m.), Los Angeles (11/19, 4:00 p.m.) and Anaheim (11/20, 8:00 p.m.).
