Ellis on waivers

Forward Matt Ellis was put on waivers by the Red Wings, Wednesday, according to general manager Ken Holland. The other NHL teams have until noon, Thursday, to claim him. After that point, the Red Wings can assign Ellis to Grand Rapids, if they desire.
Thus the need for Mark Hartigan, who was called up from the Griffins, Wednesday.
Holland also said that if the Red Wings extend a contract offer to Darren McCarty, it will come at the end of this week. If they do so before the Tuesday trade deadline, the Red Wings will have the option of keeping McCarty in Grand Rapids on a conditioning assignment.
