Playing careerEdit

Janik was drafted 55th overall in the 2nd round by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. Janik played collegiate hockey for the University of Maine before making his professional debut with the Sabres affiliate, the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League in 2001–02.

On July 6, 2006, Janik signed as a free agent with the Tampa Bay Lightning.[1] He played his first full NHL season in 2006–07 and appeared in 136 games in two seasons.

Janik was signed as an unrestricted free agent by the Chicago Blackhawks on July 15, 2008; before playing for the Blackhawks, though, he was claimed off waivers by the Dallas Stars for the start of the 2008–09 season on October 2, 2008. He was then claimed off of waivers by Chicago on October 8, only to be immediately traded back to Dallas for a conditional draft pick. After appearing in just 13 games with the Stars and used mainly as a reserve defenseman he was traded to the Montreal Canadiens for Steve Bégin on February 26, 2009.[2] After clearing waivers, Janik was then assigned to affiliate the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL. Janik played his first game with the Montreal Canadiens on April 6, 2009 against the Ottawa Senators.

Doug was again on the move after the season when he was traded by the Canadiens along with Christopher Higgins and Ryan McDonagh to the New York Rangers for Scott Gomez, Tom Pyatt, and Michael Busto on the eve of free agency on June 30, 2009.[3]

Unsigned from the Rangers Janik became a Free Agent and on July 8, 2009, he signed a one-year contract with the Detroit Red Wings.[4] After initially starting the 2009–10 season with AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, he made his Red Wing debut on November 3, 2009 against the Boston Bruins.[5] He played 13 games with the Wings before recording a career high 37 points with the Griffins. On June 10, 2010, Janik was re-signed by the Red Wings to a two-year contract.[6]
