DETROIT (AP) -The Detroit Red Wings recalled Darren McCarty from the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins.
The 35-year-old McCarty helped the Red Wings win Stanley Cups in 1997, 1998 and 2002.
The Wings said Friday on their Web site that the hard-nosed fan favorite is day-to-day with a minor rib injury.
The right wing was assigned to Grand Rapids on a conditioning loan after he signed a one-year contract last month.
