DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today reassigned right wing Evgeny Svechnikov to the team’s taxi squad from the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins.

Svechnikov has skated in three games with the Griffins this season, picking up a goal, an assist and two penalty minutes. The 24-year-old is in his fourth professional campaign, returning to Grand Rapids in 2019-20 after missing the previous season due to a knee injury. In 185 games with the Griffins since 2015-16, Svechnikov has recorded 101 points (39-62-101) and 183 penalty minutes, adding 14 points (6-8-14) and 24 penalty minutes in 26 AHL Calder Cup Playoff games. As a first-year pro in 2016-17, Svechnikov registered a career-high 51 points (20-31-51) in 74 regular-season games and helped the Griffins capture the 2017 Calder Cup championship. The 6-foot-3, 208-pound winger has also appeared in 20 NHL games with the Red Wings since 2016-17, totaling four points (2-2-4) and 10 penalty minutes.

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.
