Good news on the injury front after the Red Wings’ 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues: the Wings have officially cleared Jan Mursak to play and assigned him to Grand Rapids, result in a 2-week conditioning stint which should yield more speed and depth on the fourth line when Mursak and Chris Conner (broken hand) return from their respective injuries. Here’s the Griffins’ press release confirming Mursak’s assignment:
The Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday assigned right wing Jan Mursak to the Grand Rapids Griffins for conditioning.
Mursak has not played this season after breaking his ankle in a Sept. 25 preseason game versus the Chicago Blackhawks. The 23-year-old forward skated in 54 games with the Griffins last season, recording 35 points (13-22—35). He also appeared in 19 games for the Red Wings, notching his first NHL goal on Jan. 10 versus Colorado. The Maribor, Slovenia, native has registered 86 points (39-47—86) in 184 career games with the Griffins from 2008-11.

It's a harsh reality in the NHL: Do your job well or someone will take it from you. Mike Commodore taking Jakub Kindl's spot on the Red Wings' defense is a prime example.
