Jakub Vrana’s return to the Detroit Red Wings lineup has been put off for at least another week because he has extended his conditioning stint with the Grand Rapids Griffins.
Vrana will play three more AHL games this week, all at Van Andel Arena – Wednesday vs. Cleveland and Friday and Saturday against Texas.
“He’s going to use the full two weeks, which I think is good,” Red Wings coach Derek Lalonde said. “I think he felt good about his last game and will play three more games this week.
“I think ultimately Steve (general manager Yzerman) put it on him, what he wanted to do, and it’s a credit to him he wanted to get some more touches that way.”
Vrana had no points, nine shots on goal and a minus-5 rating in three games with Grand Rapids last week.
Khan on Zadina,
“When I come back, I won’t be thinking about what happened before, how many games I played,” Zadina said. “Basically, I want to take it (his first nine games) as a preseason game. That’s my fresh start. The first game of the season will be for me the game when I come back. That’s probably the focus for the future.”
