DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings have made moves to replace defenseman Ian White on their upcoming road trip. Detroit has recalled defenseman Brendan Smith from the Grand Rapids Griffins and put forward Todd Bertuzzi on injured reserve for seven days. Smith won't play on a road trip that starts Tuesday night in St. Louis and ends Sunday against Anaheim. Smith will serve the final game of his five-game suspension against the Blues. He was suspended for five regular season games for hitting Chicago's Ben Smith in the head during an exhibition game. White broke a cheek bone when he blocked a shot in Saturday's win over Dallas. Bertuzzi has missed four games with a sinus infection and swollen ear.
