Amongst this morning/early afternoon's Red Wings-related news:
The Wings had recalled Riley Sheahan on an "emergency" basis as the team feared that Henrik Zetterberg (groin) might not be able to play during Sunday's 1-0 loss to St. Louis, so the press release the Wings sent out to their email list on Monday offered no surprise:
RED WINGS REASSIGN RILEY SHEAHAN TO GRAND RAPIDS
Detroit, MI... The Detroit Red Wings today announced that forward Riley Sheahan has been reassigned to the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League.
