The Grand Rapids Griffins Next Season

06/01/2022 at 10:32am EDT

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

The Detroit Red Wings have decisions to make about who may play for their Grand Rapids Griffins farm team next season. Detroit fans certainly understand that goalie Sebastian Cossa is ticketed for Grand Rapids. Defenseman Albert Johansson could end up there, although the Red Wings and their fans hope he is playing in Detroit.

But other personnel decisions are less obvious. Will the Red Wings make a qualifying offer to Chase Pearson? How about goalie Victor Brattstrom?

Riley Barber isn’t signed yet. Will he get re-signed? Under American Hockey League rules, teams can only use six veteran players in every game. To qualify as a veteran, a player must play in 261 or more games in the NHL, AHL and European Elite Leagues and be least 25 years old. AHL teams may dress no more than six veterans each game, not including goalies.

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.
