With Fabian Brunnstrom clearing waivers this afternoon, the Red Wings’ brass has decided to do something that they typically don’t do – call-up a first-year pro.
Rookie forward Gustav Nyquist has played in just 17 pro hockey games, but he’ll get his NHL indoctrination Tuesday night when the Wings host the Minnesota Wild at Joe Louis Arena.
The 22-year-old forward, who scored two goals in the Wings’ preseason finale, has nine points in nine AHL games this season for the Grand Rapids Griffins.
The Wings, who have scored 10 goals in the last five games, will be looking for scoring from their up-and-coming your star.
“We need to score some goals,” Wings general manager Ken Holland said.
