DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings today assigned forwards Kyle Criscuolo, Taro Hirose and Givani Smith, and goaltender Jussi Olkinuora to the American Hockey League's Grand Rapids Griffins. Detroit has also placed forward Robby Fabbri on injured reserve and designated defensemen Seth Barton, Mark Pysyk and Jake Walman as injured non-roster. Additionally, the Red Wings released defenseman Jeremie Biakabutuka from his amateur tryout.

The roster moves bring the Red Wings to a 23-man roster, consisting of 14 forwards, seven defensemen and two goaltenders. The Red Wings will begin the 97th season in franchise history on Friday, Oct. 14 at 7:00 p.m. when they host the Montreal Canadiens at Little Caesars Arena.

Hard not to be optimistic about this 23 man roster. I'm still expecting some growing pains but it sure seems like they've turned the corner and have a new trajectory. 


Can't wait for the season to start!!


I do feel optimism about the season at hand, but I also remain steadfast in my belief that we're not quite a playoff calibre team. Maybe next season?


I think next year starts the years of playoff pushing. Rotate the kids in when possible/necessary, trade some old dudes at the TDL, finish 10th in the league, win the lottery...


I'm very much looking forward to the season. Hopefully Big elm will do very well


Looking for improvement this season, but no playoffs yet.
