DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings today recalled center Joe Veleno from the American Hockey League's Grand Rapids Griffins.

Veleno, 21, is off to a fast start with the Griffins, leading the team with three goals and ranking second with 15 shots through five games. The third-year pro spent most of the 2020-21 campaign in Sweden, notching 20 points (11-9-20) in 46 games with the Swedish Hockey League's Malmo Redhawks. He returned to North America at the conclusion of the SHL season, scoring his first NHL goal during his first stint with the Red Wings and finishing with one goal (1-0-1) in five games. He also skated in four games with Grand Rapids, notching three points (1-2-3) and four penalty minutes. In 63 AHL games since 2019-20, Veleno has totaled 29 points (15-14-29) and 24 penalty minutes and led all under-20 skaters in scoring during his rookie AHL season.

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.
