The Red Wings have recalled Jordin Tootoo from their AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids, per MLive.

Tootoo had appeared in eight games with the Wings this season. He will be in the lineup Thursday when the Wings host the Calgary Flames.

"Tootoo is playing (Thursday) because we're trying to win a game and we think he'll provide some energy and physicality,'' general manager Ken Holland said.

The Chirchill, Manitoba native was waived by the Wings on November 6, and was then assigned to the Grand Rapids Griffins after he cleared. He has four points (one goal, three assists) in 12 games with the Griffins.
