Red Wings recall Ouellet and Sproul

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today recalled defensemen Xavier Ouellet and Ryan Sproul from the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins.

Ouellet, 20, has appeared in 68 games with the Griffins this season, recording 16 points (4-12-16), 22 penalty minutes and a plus-three rating. The native of Bayonne, France, also appeared in three games with the Red Wings this season, registering three shots on goal and averaging 13:58 of ice time after making his NHL debut on Oct. 21 versus San Jose. Originally drafted by Detroit in the second round (48th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Ouellet skated in 223 QMJHL games with the Montreal Juniors and Blainville-Boisbriand Armada prior to turning professional, tallying 160 points (41-119-160) and 177 penalty minutes. The 6-foot, 200-lb., blueliner was also named to the QMJHL First All-Star Team and represented Canada at the 2013 World Junior Championships last season.

Sproul could become the ninth player to make his NHL debut for the Red Wings if he plays in Detroit’s season finale tomorrow against the St. Louis Blues at 12:30 p.m. (NBC/AM 1270). The 21-year-old defenseman has tallied 31 points (10-21-31) in 71 games with Grand Rapids this season and was named to the AHL All-Rookie Team earlier this week. He is second among Griffins defensemen in scoring and ranks third among AHL rookie defensemen overall. Prior to turning pro, the 6-foot-4, 205-lb., blueliner racked up 153 points (57-96-153) in 172 games with the OHL’s Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds from 2010-13. In 2012-13, he won the OHL’s Max Kaminsky Trophy as the league’s most outstanding defenseman and was named the CHL Defenseman of the Year.
