The Detroit Red Wings have recalled goaltender Jordan Pearce from Grand Rapids.

Pearce backed up Jimmy Howard on Saturday as Joey MacDonald sat out with back spasms. Ty Conklin remained in Grand Rapids to start so Pearce got the call. He will only play if Howard suffers an injury during a game.

Jordan Pearce has been called up by the Detroit Red Wings

Jordan Pearce will be competing for a job with the AHL Grand Rapids Griffins next season.

Pearce finished his NCAA career with Notre Dame in 2008-09 and was getting ready to go to medical school to become a doctor when the Red Wings offered him a contract. He's primarily served as an ECHL goaltender over the past two years, but last season he ended up beating out former first round pick Thomas McCollum for the AHL starting job. However, he'll have to compete with McCollum again in 2011-12, along with Joey MacDonald, who started the 2010-11 season in the AHL, but was called up to the Red Wings when Chris Osgood sustained a groin injury. MacDonald's promotion helped Pearce secure a job in the AHL last season, but MacDonald will be back in the AHL for the start of the 2011-12 campaign.

Jordan Pearce has signed a two-year contract extension with the Detroit Red Wings.

Jordan Pearce has been sent back down to Grand Rapids in the AHL.

He wasn't expected to see any action during his call-up from the minors anyway. The Wings did what was projected when they brought Joey MacDonald back up from the minors on Monday to serve as Jimmy Howard's backup after Evgeni Nabokov was claimed off waivers by the New York Islanders.

Jordan Pearce has been called up by the Detroit Red Wings.

Pearce was probably called up to give goaltender Joey MacDonald a chance to get some playing time in the minors while Detroit's netminding situation sorts itself out. Detroit signed Evgeni Nabokov to a one-year contract, but he must clear waivers before he can play with the team. If Nabokov clears waivers, Pearce will obviously be sent down. If Nabokov doesn't clear waivers, Detroit will probably send down Pearce anyways and recall Joey MacDonald.
