from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

It was a strange hockey season for the Red Wings and the rest of the NHL.

But you can argue it was even more unusual for the Grand Rapids Griffins, the Wings’ American Hockey League affiliate, and the other teams in the AHL.

With the pandemic still raging during the fall, the Griffins didn’t even know they’d be playing until it was announced on Jan. 4. The Griffins only got to play 32 games and ended their season Saturday with a 4-1 victory over Cleveland, one of four other teams in the Central Division the Griffins played exclusively.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
