JANIK ADDS TO DEFENSIVE DEPTH


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Detroit Red Wings, parent club of the Grand Rapids Griffins, on Wednesday announced the signing of veteran defenseman Doug Janik (JAN-nihk) to a one-year, two-way contract.

Janik, 29, has appeared in 161 NHL games over his eight professional seasons, totaling 16 points (3-13—16) and 123 penalty minutes for Buffalo, Tampa Bay, Dallas and Montreal. During the 2008-09 season, he registered one assist in 13 games with the Stars before going scoreless in two games following a Feb. 26 trade to the Canadiens. The majority of Janik’s NHL experience came with the Lightning from 2006-08, when he accumulated 15 points (3-12—15) over 136 games.

Janik, who played for the PlanetUSA squad at the 2004 AHL All-Star Classic in Grand Rapids, spent most of the 2008-09 campaign in the AHL, splitting time between Rockford (0-2-2 in 4 GP) and Hamilton (0-5-5 in 18 GP). He also played five seasons for Rochester (2001-06) and shows 103 points (23-80—103) and 700 PIM through 398 career AHL contests.
