Red Wings activate Gustavsson, re-assign Mrazek
The Detroit Red Wings have activated goaltender Jonas Gustavsson from injured reserve and assigned Petr Mrazek and Cory Emmerton to the AHL.

The Detroit Red Wings have activated goaltender Jonas Gustavsson off injured reserve.

The Red Wings also assigned goaltender Petr Mrazek and forward Cory Emmerton to Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League.

Gustavsson is expected to be the backup to starter Jimmy Howard, but he hasn't played this season after suffering a groin injury during the preseason. He was 2-2-1 in seven appearances last season.

Howard has started all four games this season for the Red Wings, who are 2-2-0 following their 4-2 home loss to the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday.

Emmerton, who has played in 125 games with the Red Wings over four seasons, had one assist in four games this season.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
