Griffins add 10 players as Red Wings assign seven, release three to Grand Rapids

The Detroit Red Wings made some more moves on Sunday when they assigned defensemen Joe Hicketts, Dan Renouf and Vili Saarijarvi, forwards Axel Holmstrom, Dylan Sadowy and Dominic Turgeon, and goaltender Tom McCollum to the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Forwards Colin Campbell, Matt Ford and Dominik Shine were released from their professional tryouts, and the Red Wings returned them to Grand Rapids.

The Griffins’ roster now stands at 19 players as Grand Rapids will make its practice debut at Van Andel Arena tomorrow.
