DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today recalled center Darren Helm and defenseman Xavier Ouellet from the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins and assigned center Luke Glendening to the Griffins.

Helm, 26, returns to the Red Wings after a two-game conditioning stint with the Griffins, recording three shots and a minus-one rating in Grand Rapids’ home opener versus the Milwaukee Admirals on Friday along with one shot and a plus-one rating on Saturday against the Rockford IceHogs. The Winnipeg, Manitoba, native has appeared in 249 games for Detroit, recording 83 points (32-51-83) and 54 penalty minutes. He has also played in 65 career postseason games, notching 16 points (10-6-16) and 18 penalty minutes. The seventh-year pro played in just one game with Detroit last year while battling a back injury.

Ouellet, 20, has appeared in five games with Grand Rapids in his first professional season, notching two assists and a plus-one rating. Originally drafted by Detroit in the second round (48th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Ouellet spent the past four seasons with the Montreal Juniors and Blainville-Boisbriand Armada in the QMJHL. In 223 career major junior games, the Bayonne, France, native totaled 160 points (41-119-160) and 177 penalty minutes. He also represented Canada at the 2013 World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia, finishing the tournament with three points (1-2-3) in six games.

Glendening, 24, made his NHL debut with Detroit on Oct. 12, in the team’s 5-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers. In five games with the Red Wings this season, he has logged two penalty minutes and six shots on goal while averaging 9:31 of ice time. The Grand Rapids, Mich., native helped his hometown team to their first-ever Calder Cup championship last season, recording 26 points (8-18-26) in 51 regular season games and 16 points (6-10-16) in 24 postseason contests. Glendening previously skated with the University of Michigan from 2008-12, recording 70 points (31-39-70) and 122 penalty minutes in 165 collegiate games.
