MLive's Ansar Khan reports that the Red Wings have decided to give 40-year-old Mike Knuble a thank-you for helping out the Grand Rapids Griffins...and they're giving him a chance to finish his career with the team he wanted to finish his career playing for: Veteran forward Mike Knuble, 40, will be attending Detroit Red Wings training camp on a tryout. The 6-foot-3, 230-pound right wing had six goals and 12 assists in 72 games for the Washington Capitals last season. He is longshot to earn a spot on a crowded roster that includes 14 healthy forwards, plus Patrick Eaves, who will start the season on injured reserve due to a concussion. The Red Wings also have a few apparently NHL-ready forwards with the Grand Rapids Griffins. But Knuble believes he still has some hockey left in him. Good for him, and I hope he makes the roster!
