News: Ouellet was reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Saturday.
Impact: Recalled Saturday morning with Brendan Smith was battling an arm injury, Ouellet stuck around with the Red Wings for only a few hours. Smith, who was considered a game-time decision for Saturday's contest, ended up being able to play, making Ouellet's services unneeded. Expect Ouellet to return to the Red Wings again this season the next time an injury strikes on the blue line.

News: Ouellet was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Saturday, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Impact: With Brendan Smith nursing a sore arm and Kyle Quincey still recovering from an ankle injury, Ouellet will be on hand as insurance on defense. In the event Smith is formally ruled out prior to Saturday's game against the Predators, Ouellet would likely draw in on the Red Wings' third defensive pairing. During his stay with the big club earlier this season, Ouellet generated two goals and an assist over 21 games.
