The Malik Report
by George Malik on 04/09/13 at 04:18 PM ET
Update #2: I believe that Alexei Marchenko's also in Grand Rapids based upon photographic evidence: As noted this morning, Capgeek.com's added Richard Nedomlel to the Red Wings' organizational chart, and while the Red Wings have yet to confirm whether they've signed Nedomlel, and Red Wings and Grand Rapids Griffins have yet to say thing about Jatkoiaka's Matias Strozyk's report that Teemu Pulkkinen will spend the balance of the 2012-2013 season with Grand Rapids...
The Griffins issued a press release confirming Ryan Sproul's Tweet that he joined Grand Rapids, and today, via RedWingsFeed, the Griffins are reporting that Nedomlel's joined the team on an amateur try-out, and that the same is true of Jake Paterson, who stated that he would be aiding the Grifins' cause as well:
The Grand Rapids Griffins on Tuesday signed defenseman Richard Nedomlel (NEE-duhm-ehl) and goaltender Jake Paterson to amateur tryouts.
Nedomlel, 19, appeared in 72 games with the WHL’s Swift Current Broncos this season, tallying 28 points (7-21—28). The 6-foot-5, 231-pound defenseman placed 10th overall and second among his team’s defensemen in scoring and also ranked second with 105 penalty minutes. In 210 career WHL contests, the Prague, Czech Republic, native has registered 84 points (17-67—84) and 295 penalty minutes. Nedomlel was Detroit’s eighth choice (175th overall) in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
Paterson, 18, posted a 25-21-2 record, a 3.53 goals against average, a 0.901 save percentage and one shutout in 50 contests with the OHL’s Saginaw Spirit this season. A third-round pick (80th overall) of Detroit in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, the Mississauga, Ontario, native sports a 46-41-5 record, a 3.45 GAA and a 0.903 save percentage in 97 career OHL games. The 6-foot-1, 183-pound netminder also represented Canada at the 2013 World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia, but he did not appear in game action.
The Griffins will open their final homestand of the regular season this week with three home games in four nights. Grand Rapids will host Chicago on Wednesday, Milwaukee on Friday and Peoria on Saturday. All games will start at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at griffinshockey.com.

The Red Wings confirmed that they'd signed Northern Michigan University goalie Jared Coreau last Wednesday, and while he hasn't appeared during a practice yet, he's listed on both Capgeek's Wings organization chart and on the Red Wings' roster page, and over the past three games, he's been listed as a goalie wearing #0 (an illegal number in the NHL) on the Red Wings' official list of scratches.
It's safe to say that Coreau will begin to share the practice nets with Jimmy Howard and Jonas Gustavsson sometime over the next week to ten days.
Update: the Griffins just Tweeted the following:
Their link goes to a Flickr photo gallery in which Paterson, Sproul, Jarnkrok and Nedomlel are taking part in a Griffins practice ran by...Chris Osgood.
The Griffins play home games on Wednesday (vs. Chicago), Friday (vs. Milwaukee) and Saturday (vs. Peoria), and as they have to return Calle Jarnrkrok to Sweden on April 14th so that he's able to prepare for playing in the World Chapionships as a member of the Swedish national team, now's as good a time as any to get a gander at the Wings' next wave of top prospects.
Update #1.5: RedWingsCentral's added a Jared Coreau profile and scouting report to the mix, too. Methinks he'll be the subject of tomorrow's prospect report.
Update #2: The three sticks in the stick rack picture? The third one is an Easton stick that says "MARCHENKO," so Alexei Marchenko's apparently made his way to Grand Rapids as well. This right-handed defenseman appears to be Marchenko.
