Red Wings sign Janik
Of the recent depth signings, Janik has the most impressive resume. Buffalo's second-round draft pick in 1999 (55th overall), Janik has played in 161 NHL regular-season games and was a regular with Tampa Bay in 2006-07 and 2007-08, playing 136 regular-season games combined in those two years.
Janik appeared in 13 games for the Dallas Stars and two games for the Montreal Canadiens in 2008-09.
The Wings are deep on the blue line, but if there are injuries, Janik is positioned to battle prospect Jakub Kindl for the NHL call-up.
