The Detroit Red Wings had a rough outing on Saturday night, dropping a 6-0 loss to St. Louis, but the team's AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, defeated the Rockford IceHogs 11-6...And if you look at the box score, they had an "interesting" evening.
Via the Left Wing Lock's Sarah Lindenau, here's a video of a bench-clearing brawl at the 11:58 mark of the 2nd period, which resulted in game misconducts to Wings prospects Gleason Fournier, Brian Lashoff, Tomas Tatar and goaltender Petr Mrazek in an old-school bench-clearing brawl.
It's a little fuzzy, but it's also probably the only video of the brawl we'll find. For now:
Update: Via RedWingsFeed:
Some old time hockey from the #peskygriffs. Bench clearing brawl with a 11-6 win. Stoked to get the first pro hatty. Happy bus

Despite a spate of injuries that could leave the Detroit Red Wings down a couple of key forwards when the season opens, veteran Mike Knuble could not claim a roster spot. Instead, Knuble will head to the AHL.
Knuble will sign PTO with Grand Rapids, trying to catch onto NHL team.

The Detroit Red Wings got their 2013 season off to the roughest start possible on Saturday, losing 6-0 to the St. Louis Blues while only firing 14 shots on goal.
It was the most frustrating season opener recently for the Red Wings, who for the first time in recent memory, might finally appear headed for their version of hockey’s rebuilding stage. This has been helped along especially...
Some bad news for the Detroit Red Wings on opening night: forward Todd Bertuzzi, who was thought to have the flu, will instead miss “several weeks” with mono, Mike Babcock told reporters on Saturday.
Considering the shortened schedule and a typical recovery time from mono, Bertuzzi may not make his 2013 debut until the final stretch of the regular season in late March or early...
According to the Detroit News, 28-year-old Red Wings forward Patrick Eaves has been cleared to return to the ice after missing the past year.
Eaves, who hasn’t played since November of 2011 due to a broken jaw and concussion when a shot hit him in the face should be on the Wings’ roster Saturday night when they travel to St. Louis to take on the Blues.
The Wings however will...
Fox Sports Detroit posted its preliminary Red Wings broadcast schedule about a week ago, and now the Red Wings have issued a press release stating both its TV and radio broadcast slots for the 2013 season.
ED WINGS ANNOUNCE 2012-13 TV/RADIO SCHEDULE
Detroit, MI…The Detroit Red Wings today announced their 2012-13 broadcast schedule that includes all 48 regular season games...
via Ansar Khan of Mlive,
Mike Knuble signed a 25-game pro tryout contract with the Grand Rapids Griffins. That means he'll play for the Griffins but can sign with any NHL team that comes calling.
Todd Bertuzzi (groin, sick) will not play in Saturday's season opener at St. Louis but the club hopes he'll be ready for the second game, Monday in Columbus.
from Drew Sharp of the Detroit Free Press,
One game certainly isn't cause for pressing the panic button. A certain amount of sloppiness and lack of cohesion was expected. But considering that all of the Wings' concerns this season revealed themselves within the first two periods of the first game suggests that general manager Ken Holland perhaps can't afford to be...
Prior to the past couple seasons, the Detroit Red Wings have heard every possible explanation for why their long-running playoff streak could finally end.
Adding another year to an aging core and subtracting one of the greatest defensemen in NHL history heading into a lockout-shortened sprint of a season make this one no exception.
Detroit begins its quest for a 22nd straight playoff...
The Detroit Red Wings begin their 2013 season against the St. Louis Blues tonight (8 PM EST, FSD w/ a 1-hour preview starting at 7/97.1 FM, and ohyeahbytheway, Center Ice is holding a free preview until the end of January), and as we a) won't know the final shape of the Wings' or Blues' rosters for tonight's game until the morning skate at about noon ET today (okay...
Editors Note: This is a series that will run throughout the Red Wings season as Andrew attempts the treacherous journey of teaching his significant other about hockey, the NHL, the Detroit Red Wings and why the shootout is stupid. Check back regularly for updates on the process and anecdotes about how no matter what happens, Patrick Roy was never as good as Chris Osgood.
The season opener is in the books and the Red Wings played like trash. The Blues came to play and the Red Wings were completely unprepared. Sad.
The defense was a big letdown. Quincey in particular had a bad night. Blues rookie Vladimir Tarasenko
humiliated him over and over again. It’s not all on Quincey, though. Not by a long shot...
In this weeks episode of Crashing the Net with Aaron Eggemeyer, the hockey guru himself breaks down each division heading into the shortened regular season while spending some time discussion a Red Wings team entering a new era under the captaincy of Henrik Zetterberg. Here’s what was on tap the other night: Division by division [...]
