Wings setting dubious records as they try to continue playoff streak

DETROIT -- The Red Wings have already set a dubious record and are on the verge of setting another Tuesday night in Columbus -- yet they're still in the playoff hunt. When the Wings lost in overtime to the Minnesota Wild Sunday night, they reached 351 man-games lost to injury, the most since 1985-86, when they first started keeping that statistic. The Wings passed the 346 man...

Red Wings’ call-up of Callahan yields Griffins moves…on defense?

File this under, "A little intriguing": the Red Wings may have swapped Landon Ferraro for Mitchell Callahan, but the Griffins' defense must have taken a hit this past weekend, because the Griffins both recalled Max Nicastro from the Toledo Walleye and they signed fellow defenseman Marc McNulty to an amateur try-out (McNulty's Prince George Cougars didn't make...

Red Wings make a roster swap, recall Callahan from Grand Rapids

The Red Wings sent Landon Ferraro back to Grand Rapids after a 4-game audition for next year's roster, and now they've called up another player who's not waiver-exempt next season: Wings recalled LW Mitch Callahan (@Mcally15) from the @griffinshockey & assigned center Landon Ferraro to Griffins. — Detroit Red Wings (@DetroitRedWings) March 24, 2014 ...

With Bertuzzi likely to play Tuesday, Red Wings return Ferraro to Grand Rapids

Landon Ferraro looked like a player who's more than willing to earn a spot on the Red Wings' fourth line next September and work his way up from there, but with Darren Helm returning to the lineup and Todd Bertuzzi deemed healthy for Tuesday's game against Columbus (by the Wings' coach, after Detroit's 3-2 OT loss to Minnesota on Sunday), the Wings are no longer...

A Red Wings-and-Maple Leafs-y injury update and/or playoff status discussion and/or missive

I'm trying not to get into details, but the last two weeks have obviously involved a difficult time for me health-wise, and as a result, a diminished presence here. I'm on my way to recovery, but it appears that I can't give the same prognosis for the Red Wings' playoff chances ahead of Tuesday's game against Toronto (7:30 PM on FSD and Sportsnet Ontario).

Abdelkader possibly out, Ferraro in for Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings certainly don't have the luck of the Irish in terms of injuries this season. Todd Bertuzzi missed Sunday night's game in Chicago with a lower-body injury, and the Wings had to recall Jordin Tootoo from Grand Rapids to take his place in the lineup. Now the Wings have recalled 22-year-old Landon Ferraro from Grand Rapids, also on an emergency basis, because...

Red Wings prospect news: Griffins take two vs. Milwaukee; Walleye win 2 straight

It is indeed, in the words of my friend Courtney, all sunshine and happiness in Grand Rapids, with perhaps the exception of the lake effect snow. The Grand Rapids Griffins won their second game in as many nights as the 19-5-1-and-1 Griffins defeated the Milwaukee Admirals 5-0. The follow-up to last night's fisticuffs-filled 4-2 decision offered no less than three scraps, but...

Red Wings mid-day quickies: Ferraro’s journey, Athanasiou’s slick move and Franzen’s ‘numbers’

Today's Red Wings-related stories mostly involve "tidbits," but I did find something of a tale of two prospects who are taking part in the Red Wings' main camp and prospect tournament, respectively, on what is a bit of a "slow day."

Wings May Not Find A Fit With The UFA’s

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press, As NHL free agency heats up Wednesday — any unrestricted free agent can talk to any team, though not sign until Friday — the Wings’ focus is shifting more to keeping two of their own guys than bringing in someone new. That’s because of prohibitive prices: Lecavalier, 34, wants a five-year deal averaging around $5 million...
