Red Wings place Rowney and Barber on IR, recall Criscuolo

The Detroit Red Wings have retroactively placed forwards Carter Rowney and Riley Barber on injured reserve.

Rowney was placed on IR retroactive to Jan. 4, meaning he can be activated at any time. Barber, retroactively added on Jan. 11, will have to wait until at least a week from that date (Jan. 18) to be activated.

In a corresponding move, the Red Wings recalled forward Kyle Criscuolo from the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins on Thursday.
