Hasek dinged up, Howard recalled by Wings

Jimmy Howard will be with the Red Wings Friday and Chris Osgood will start in net against San Jose. Dominik Hasek is listed as day-to-day with a sore hip. Dallas Drake was put on injured reserve retroactive to one week ago, meaning that he can come off the IR any day.

Press release from the Griffins ...

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Detroit Red Wings announced today the recall of goaltender Jimmy Howard from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League.

In four games played this season, Howard shows a 3-1-0 record with a 3.00 GAA and a 0.902 save percentage. With a 29-save performance on Oct. 11, he became just the fourth Griffins goalie to earn 50 career wins (Joey MacDonald 87, 2002-06; Marc Lamothe 54, 2002-04; Mike Fountain 55, 1999-01).

Howard will be available for action Friday when Detroit hosts the San Jose Sharks at 7:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast on FSN Detroit.
