The Ostrava, Czech Republic, native also appeared in two games for Detroit, sporting a 1-1 record, a 2.02 GAA and a 0.922 save percentage, as well as three games for the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye, posting a 2-1 record, a 2.02 GAA and a 0.944 save percentage.
Mrazek will back up Jonas Gustavsson tonight when the Red Wings host the Columbus Blue Jackets at 8 p.m. (FOX Sports Detroit/WXYT 1270 AM).

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.
