Callahan will likely replace forward Steve Ott in the lineup. Ott was traded to the Montreal Canadiens Tuesday for a sixth-round pick.
In 53 games for the Griffins this season, Callahan has 14 goals and 22 assists. He was drafted by the Red Wings in the sixth-round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and has only appeared in one NHL game for the Wings.
If the Wings make more moves before the 3 p.m. trade deadline on Wednesday, there will likely be more call-ups. Stay tuned.
