He logged 18:16 of ice time and registered three shots on goal in a 2-1 shootout loss.

Jakub Kindl will draw back into Detroit's lineup on Monday against Ottawa.

He has been a healthy scratch for the past four games and coach Mike Babcock was clear with what he expects. "Just flat-out compete," the Red Wings bench boss said. "Go back, get pucks, make plays, compete. That's all part of being a good teammate, being competitive, being ultra-competitive, being good to help your team win." Kindl will replace Brian Lashoff in the lineup.
