DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today placed center Michael Rasmussen on long-term injured reserve retroactive to Jan. 4 and assigned him to the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins for conditioning.

Rasmussen has skated in 41 games as a rookie with the Red Wings in 2018-19, totaling 13 points (6-7-13) and 19 penalty minutes. The 19-year-old forward was one of five Red Wings to make their NHL debut on Oct. 4 vs. Columbus and went on to record his first NHL point on Oct. 8 at Anaheim and score his first goal on Oct. 30 at Columbus. The Surrey, British Columbia, native became the sixth teenager in Detroit’s franchise history to score in three-straight games when he did so from Nov. 13-17. Rasmussen is tied for second on the Red Wings with three power-play goals, which is also tied for sixth among NHL rookies.

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.
