DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today recalled goaltender Kaden Fulcher from the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins under emergency conditions.

Fulcher, 20, has appeared in 28 games for the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye in 2018-19, posting a 15-7-6 record, 3.00 goals-against average, 0.899 save percentage and one shutout to help the Walleye clinch a berth in the postseason, currently sitting fourth in the Eastern Conference with a 37-21-6-3 record. He recently posted the first shutout of his professional career by making 27 saves on March 3 against the Indy Fuel. The first-year pro was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Red Wings on Oct. 3, 2017, earning a contract after attending the Red Wings’ 2017 development camp and training camp as a free agent invitee.

The 6-foot-3, 187-pound netminder turned professional in 2018-19 after a decorated end to his major-junior career, which he spent with the Sarnia Sting and Hamilton Bulldogs from 2015-18. In 2017-18, Fulcher helped Hamilton win the J. Ross Robertson Cup as champions of the Ontario Hockey League following a 32-17-6 regular-season record alongside a 2.86 goals-against average and 0.899 save percentage and a 16-5 postseason record with a 2.70 goals-against average and 0.905 save percentage. He was also named the Most Outstanding Goaltender at the Canadian Hockey League Memorial Cup following a 2.27 goals-against average and 0.918 save percentage in four games at the tournament. In all, the Brigden, Ontario, native posted a 57-44-13 record, 3.19 goals-against average, 0.893 save percentage and five shutouts in 115 career OHL games.

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.
