The Red Wings placed forward Johan Franzen on injured reserve. They also removed goaltender Jonas Gustavsson from IR and assigned him to Grand Rapids of the AHL.

Franzen has missed Detroit's last two games with a hip injury.

Gustavsson was signed by the Red Wings in July and has appeared in one game for them this season. He's been out with a groin injury.

Flames call up goaltender

The Flames recalled goaltender Danny Taylor from the AHL and assigned Leland Irving to their Abbotsford affiliate.

The move comes after the club claimed goalie Joey MacDonald off waivers earlier this week after it was announced that No. 1 netminder Miikka Kiprusoff will miss more time because of a knee injury.

This is Taylor's second stint with the Flames this season.
