from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
Michael Rasmussen will stay in the AHL for one more game.
The Red Wings sent Rasmussen to Grand Rapids last week at the conclusion of the Wings’ bye week for a conditioning stint.
He scored two goals (one an empty net) in his Griffins debut Thursday against Texas, then was held scoreless the next night in San Antonio (no shots on net). The Griffins host Manitoba on Wednesday.
Rasmussen had been bothered by hamstring issues and hadn’t played since Jan. 4.
Because of the lengthy time between games, the Wings felt it was best for Rasmussen to have a brief stay in Grand Rapids.
Sam McCaig of The Hockey News lists first, 2nd and 3rd NHL Rookie All-Star teams.
Dennis Cholowski is on the 2nd team.
D – Dennis Cholowski, Detroit: The most productive rookie defenseman not named Dahlin or Heiskanen. Seven goals, nine power-play points and more than 18 minutes per game.
