Ryan Sproul assigned to Griffins

Ryan Sproul, a 6-foot-4, 211-pound defenseman, was assigned to the Grand Rapids Griffins by the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday.

Due to injuries throughout the season, Sproul was limited to 27 games with the Wings last season, but scored seven points (1 goal, 6 assists) during his time in Hockeytown.

Spoil is a familiar name here in Beer City, USA as he skated in 215 regular season games with the Griffins from 2012-16, totaling 91 points (28 goals, 63 assists) while accumulating 99 penalty minutes.

In other news, Detroit also recalled forward Matt Lorito from the Griffins and placed him on non-roster injured reserve.
