The Detroit Red Wings announced on Monday that they’ve called up a trio of players from the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins.
Pearce will back up Joey MacDonald, as Jimmy Howard will miss the game with an unspecified lower-body injury suffered during Sunday’s 2-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. Howard left that game after the first period, with the score tied 1-1.
Janik will swap in for Jakub Kindl, who also left Sunday’s game early.
Conner will replace Todd Bertuzzi, who’s been playing through a groin injury.
