Red Wings send Nyquist, Mrazek to AHL

The Detroit Red Wings have assigned forward Gustav Nyquist to Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League, according to a report by the Detroit Free Press.

Goaltender Petr Mrazek also was sent to Grand Rapids, and forward Darren Helm will be put on long-term injured reserve, according to the report.

Nyquist played in all 14 games for the Red Wings during the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, but a number of offseason additions, plus the re-signing of Daniel Cleary earlier this month, created a glut of forwards on the Detroit roster.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
