General manager Ken Holland said the move was done partly because "Jordin wants to be back in the NHL. This gives him an opportunity."
"Toots doesn’t want to be in the American League. We don’t want him to be in the American Hockey League,” Holland said. “Toots has done everything we could have asked of him in the AHL. He hasn’t complained. He’s been a good foot solider. … I don’t think it’s fair to Toots and from the business standpoint, we don’t want Toots in the American Hockey League, so I got to figure out a way to get Jordin Tootoo back to the National Hockey League.”

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
