RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Ouellet failed to score in five games with the Red Wings, but recorded 17 in 70 games with the Grand Rapids Griffins in 2013-14. He's one of the better defensive prospects Detroit has, and he will be one of the first blue line call-ups when injuries arrive. Keep your eye on him from the waiver wire.
Ouellet has shown promise in the QMJHL the last four years and should find his way to the AHL in the near future.
