Dominic Turgeon Recalled, David Booth Sent To Grand Rapids

from Dana Wakiji and Art Regner of the Wings' website,

Dominic Turgeon is back but Justin Abdelkader and Darren Helm won't be until after the All-Star break.

Turgeon was recalled Wednesday and David Booth was sent to the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins after he cleared waivers once again.

Abdelkader and Helm (lower-body injuries) both participated in the Red Wings' morning skate Thursday but neither is quite ready yet.

"I felt a lot better for sure," Helm said. "Had some good skates. Nothing definite but hoping (to return) pretty quickly after the break."

Wings coach Jeff Blashill had originally thought that Abdelkader might be ready for tonight's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Booth has the best goals/TOI ratio on the Wings now, and has had 30-goal seasons - I ask, is he underutilized?  (last time I checked, goals win games, btw)

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.
