from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Jakub Vrana officially joined minor-league affiliate Grand Rapids and will play three games in four nights with the Griffins. Vrana could return to the Wings in time for the January 4 game against New Jersey.

"We just want him to replicate some game play," Lalonde said. "He's been out so long — his last game was Oct. 15 — it's good for him to replicate some game play. I love the fact he agreed to the stint of three games in four nights and hopefully, it all goes well and we'll make our next decision from there."

Potentially, the Wings could have Vrana (NHL/NHLPA player-assistance program) and Robby Fabbri (knee surgery) return together for that New Jersey game.

"It's our hope," Lalonde said. "We'll see. We'd like to get there. We talked about making some tough roster decisions, but we've talked about this all year and we've been unable to get there with healthy bodies. Hopefully, we'll have that good luxury on Wednesday of next week."

The most difficult thing for any hockey team returning from the four-day holiday break?

"Getting your compete (level) up," Lalonde said. "It's difficult to replicate (in practice). It's one of the first things that happens with the time off, you lose how hard you compete."

more ($), mostly oh Husso's playing time...

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.
